    I think its a despatch riders helmet? Lets wait to see the experts opinions.

    It's is a very nice DR helmet of the latest model, made by Brigg's Motor Bodies. It is not a helmet for airborne troops, although it was used thus by the Dutch airborne troops in the post war years in Indonesia.

    Cheers,

    Thanks guys, for the info! I really appreciate it. I saw someone on ebay selling one for $400 so I did do very well.

    Nice! I envy the fact that you found this in a surplus store... many of the stores around me sell items that are brand new or made for paintball/airsoft. Good find!
