    Yeah it is the same helmet mate, and I agree, the person wearing it at the time was not having a good day at the office...

    I found an April 2011 issue (issue #54) of the Australian War Memorial's magazine "Wartime" recently, and they had a very good
    article (on Page 9) with a good colour photo of the tan para helmet with bullet hole that is part of the AWM's collection printed in
    this issue, here is the article....

    For the record, they state that it could be either north Africa or the Middle East, in my humble opinion, it is a north Africa bring back,
    and would have been worn by a member of the 'Ramcke Brigade'.....
