    Default Commando Group DR helmet

    An oddly painted (and embellished), 1944 made Despatch Rider's motorcyclist helmet, sporting the insignia of the Commando Group, introduced in early 1945. The white stripe (a racing embellishment) seems to have been overpainted, on a later stage, over some kind of front sign, may be the letter MP or something? The Commando Groups signs seem to have been there for quite a long time.... what are your opinions, gents?
