    Hi Jelley,
    The only way to find out is to post some pictures, even then we could only tell you what type of helmet it is. The M.F.T. could mean a factory or some business, so you would never find out.
    Lets see your pics.

    Hi Jelley,
    As it's a black helmet, it's more than likely to be civilian. The last letter T. could be for transport, or it could be something completely different. Are there any dates on the helmet & liner?
    Nice helmet though

    No dates I'm afraid, but the rim has 2 rivets in holding the chinstrap & liner. The inside of the helmet is white. The helmet shape is slightly elliptical, not a complete circle.

    Thanks, Nick.

    It is not even listed on the 'A.R.P.' site above !

    Probably be a fairly rare bird ............!

    The date should be somewhere on the 2 inner bands.
    Regards,

    hi all had a look inside the liner no date but a square stamp with it looks like O.R. and then underneath BB. No.
