Mystery to me ( as usual ) is it British manufacture ?
I have strained my brains and tried too do some homework on the unusual helmet pad , its oval rather than the usual ww2 era cross shape . I believe its a interwar 30s era helmet liner .
as you can see top lid blue sand textured with the inside also sand textured olive paint
only markings I can find are size 6 -3/4 stamped in white . and in pencil the initials P F H
I purchased this late last year off a contact who i trust and have brought some nice NZ issued items in mint condition before ,
the photos show a Air force ? or police ? blue sand textured lid .
it one my little mystery waiting to be solved lids .
any help and advice highly appreciated
