    Indeed, a wolseley helmet, hard to say what unit from the picture, RA or other. You do see repro's on ebay sometimes, though you might have to search for one. You also see real ones, but then getting the right size can be a problem.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    The photos are from Malta, so they are probably from one of the units stationed there. Thanks for the help guys.
