    It's an early war helmet, the summer issue type of the LKp W100. These were worn during the BoB by aircrew and I would imagine rather rare these days, as the only other I've seen was in the IWM collection at Cosford.

    I agree with Ned.

    So the lace up opening at the back and the repositioning of the electrics isn't a personalised one off thing then, I mean I've seen quite a few LKp S100's in my time but not one that looks like this.

    I must be honest, I never really took a look at the back, so maybe it is a conversion for some reason. Looks professionally done though.

    Yes, trouble is a lot of Luftwaffe helmets were converted to entirely different uses, I know some helmets were converted to Tank Headgear, I agree it looks to be professionally done, if it had been a later LKp S-101 it may have been something to do with jets but obviously this helmet is far to early for that.
