    Default Mk2. RAF Flight Officer PARME'E

    A standard Mk2 No.1 military issue helmet belonging to F/O Parme'e, & what I can see of his service No.3318-8, but that's probably wrong.
    As you can see his number & name are written on the outside brim, the yellow paint on the top of the helmet I'm pretty sure is gas detecting paint which is extremely rare to find.
    The shell is dated 1939 & made by RO&Co, but the Mk2 chin strap lug is dated 1938. The liner is also dated 39 but made by HELMETS Ltd.
    The chin strap also has his name on, F/O PARME'E, British, French, French Canadian, or Belgium?

    Hi Aaron, that's a nice named helmet, I have seen those yellow discs on the crown once or twice before and wondered what they were for. Leon.

    I like it. Hopefully the unusual name might make any research easier.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I did google the surname, but only came up with F/O Parme'e in the London gazette in the 70's.

    Very Nice and interesting . I never heard about the yellow gas detecting paint. I will have to do some research on that. Which is always a good thing to do in this hobby. I like learning new things. That is why I love this site.

    Some British vehicles used to have this gas detecting paint on, mainly on the bonnet where it could be seen.

    Hard to see it if it's on top of your head ! Guess it requires another person to see it for you , Hmm ?
