    Just about to log off and head to work ( probably be late because I've been on here too long this morning ) but I'll take some photos of a similar set I have James ....... also not sure of the date but with a soviet pilots cap, look good like yours!

    Cheers, Dan

    The insignia is certainly an non-regulation embellishment on this postwar helmet... and on wartime helmets as well. There are numerous 1940 Winter War photos showing tankers with stars on their protective headgear.

    joe ,your very lucky man to have an example of the ww2 period type tanker helmet its amazing how the design never really changed a great deal in the post war years ,also the soviet helmets ssh 39 through to the ssh 68 had similarities ,i guess if it aint broke dont fix it
