Russian Air defence/warden helmet!
I got a odd type of helmet used by Air defence/warden (Osoaviakhim). This is a Brittish WW1 Helmet that have been reissued and have got a ssh36 liner, repaint and a painted insigna in the front .the shell is probably from the russian civil war!
A real beauty!!

A nice MK 1 reissue. I've owe some examples from 1 war, I think they was USA helmets with overpainted bluish gray color, under the paint there was a front painted regimental insignia. All helmets was with original MK 1 liners, but soviet depot stamps of 1924 year was added over.
Your helmet is nice example, but I think the liner is especially made for that helmet, or?
Thanks for showing that nice helmet!
