    Well, if its not a sticky on Commonwealth Steel helmets, then delete it. As any technical stuff should be elsewhere.

    MAP, this thread has been made a sticky in the allied helmets section.

    The info you provided here is good but as you then added it to a new thread which which is a sticky in the tech section, therefore this thread should not be, or at least not in this section.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Not sure why this thread is a sticky, BUT Aaron, the owner of your helmet actually lived about 15 minutes drive from me, so im going to see if i can hunt out some more info for you..Commonwealth steel (Comsteel as its now known in Australia) are based in Newcastle, my father worked there for years. Im going in there soon to try and hunt out all the Helmet records i believe they may still have. Newcastle was a steel city, It had BHP, commonwealth steel, Tubemakers to name a few. Newcastle was shelled in WW2 by a Japanese submarine I-21 in the early hours of 8 June 1942. The bombardment followed the Attack on Sydney Harbour on 31 May, and was conducted shortly after I-24 shelled the eastern suburbs of Sydney, but the sub did not enter the harbour, had it done so it would of been right next to these giant wartime metal producers.

    Thank you for all that information.
    Probably 3 months ago a relative contacted me regarding the helmet, Cameron Scott. So it now lives back in Australia where it belongs. They sent me this very photo.
