    Agreed, a standard fastener, although what threw the helmet's owner (and me) off was that this one is installed upside down. Normally the flat blade slotted end is found on top, not on the inside.

    Interesting. Of course they work either way, but they are usually situated with the slotted end up on WW2 period MK.II's that I've observed and owned.

    Yes this is true, with the exception of South African made helmets which always seem to have the bolt upside down, for some reason.

    That would be because like Australia, Africa is in a southern latitude. (Downunder)

    Here are three of my Polish exile forces MK.II's. The liners / fasteners are original and there's nothing to suggest that they have been tampered with since use back in the day.

    On British helmets CS would normally be for casualty service, the diamond is for rank, maybe for senior CS or CS leader. As it was already marked as ARP then overpainted for CS try looking up civil defnce markings on Canadian helmets.
    Interesting anyway.

    Casualty Service I think is the most likely, the diamond would in the British ARP Service would be a rank, possibly for somebody in charge of a number of casualty teams or a casualty station.
