    I am assuming that it is WW2 New Zealand. These nets were used by the Poles in N. Africa and Italy (see attached photos of WW2 Polish forces) and as I collect Polish exile helmets of WW2 it would be nice to have a couple of these. Thanks to anyone for any help you can provide.

    Don't know; sorry. It is from a British regiment. I only know about Polish Exile helmets, but I am sure that other forum members will be able to identify it.

    Have just spoken to someone who knows a lot about WW2 helmets & nets, & he said it was an South African net. Whether they issued the New zealanders these nets while in the desert & then they passed them onto the Poles, or whether the SA's gave them to the Poles I don't know.

    OK thanks -- that makes sense, as some of the Poles also were issued with South African Tommy Helmets.
