    The flash is, i believe, Royal Army Service Corps. I would guess "G.N. 054" is the initials of his name, followed by the last 3 digits of his service number.

    Hi Mick,
    Do you have a fetish for rare liners, that's another one. I'm guessing that in 1940/41 with the big push to produce helmets because of the shortage, they sourced manufacturers albeit small ones who had the right tooling for short contracts.
    A helmet with a flash on are becoming harder to find, well done.
