    Default British WWII Helmet ID?

    Hello Guys,

    Can any one help me ID this helmet?

    I think the 1940 stamped on the inside means it was made in 1940

    The Name panited in the helmet is Lieut D.A. Lloyd.

    It has what I think is a Royal Artillery insignia on the side.

    It also has a black square with a red boat on the front

    The liner says it was made by Herbert & Johnson, New Bond Street LONDON

    See pics:

    Are you looking for info regarding the name?

    Very true, you have all the necessary details to hand but you are asking for help with this, therefore could you supply a lot clearer and larger photos of all the points you mention, noone can give their opinion on the pics supplied.
