    From those pictures I think it is a WW2 British MkII helmet, there might be some dates / makers name on the liner.

    Under a fridge,God help me
    Does it look like there is anything under the paint spot ? It could be covering something.
    And as Walkwolf says,its yours now it would be next to impossible to find its original owner,unless you know who dumped the fridge but i doubt it
    Good luck with it,its a great find
