    The insignia baffles me, but the shell and liner make me think of South Africa.

    Have a look at the black supports. It could be marked "Jager Rand".

    Cheers,
    Emile

    Hi, The only marking on the liner is a No 7. The crown pad is not the felt type you normally see in SA helmets, more like the british type. The helmet has no markings either.? Aaron.
