    Some pics of the insides would be good, looks like a nice civilian protective helmet with SFP on the front for supplementary fire party.

    Well Bugz they are all home front helmets,the CPH with SFP was made by Pressed steel co & dated March 1941 & is a size Medium. Any date/maker name on the liner?
    Next is a Mk2 No.2C for home front use, is it SCD on the front. Will be dated 1940-41 & either made by BMB,F&L, E.C & Co or J.S.S.
    The grey Mk2 is a No.2 A, one hole in the brim, same for the black Mk2, No.2A. A nice collection of home fronters, any army Mk2's?

    The sfp liner is marked 6 1/2 jrs 1941.
    It does look like it once read "scd" on the front, what would that have been? its a jss.
    Are you talking the holes near the strap? if so they have three?

    Yeah the silver one is an old "cafe racer" type puddin basin motorcycle helmet, made by cromwell protective headwear, made in england. From at least the 60's, im thinking older.
    Gifted to me as a child for my hat collection by a young friend. He was given it by his grandfather who owned/wore the helmet.

    The flight helmet has been chewed up by rats, to make matters worse i actually have my own pest control company. Maybe the rats having a little revenge on me?
