    Default Czech Helmet...WW2?

    I bought this helmet, thinking it was Russian, but now it looks Czech after a bit of research. It is stamped in the dome with "HS 50/VIII 1974". The liner looks pretty old. Is this from 1974 or earlier?

    No, unfortunately. I got similarly stung many years ago with a 1950 dated shell. Jim G.

    My understanding is that some of these helmets saw service in the middle East and its not impossible this one was used in Eqypt, but it didnt originate there.

    I got this one many years ago - this is what the WWII Czech lid looks like

    Scout, that is a Czech manufactured helmet, but I think the disc means it was used by the Danish railway police. I think I have one in storage somewhere. If I can dig it out I'll post it. Jim G.
