    I'd love to say they were GP helmets, not least because they would be about 1000-2000 more than if they were DR helmets.
    If you can show me some evidence like paper work or pictures, like I showed you with the women NFS DR's. We are all hear to learn more about what we have got.
    I saw a film about the SAS in Africa in about 1941 showing them jumping out the back of trucks onto the sand,practising jumping out of a plane.They were all wearing the tankers crash helmets( Helmet, Crash, Royal Armoured Corps) Now not for one minute could you call these helmets SAS training helmets, they were HCRAC.
    Here's some pic's of the pulp crash helmet, note stamp on liner. Plus also WW2 pic of it being used.
    But this still does not mean my HCDR is a GP helmet, as I said earlier it could be a HCDR for the RAF.
    No proper proof, as yet anyway.

    Based on what? A similar shape, that's all proof I've seen thus far.
