    Unusually for an Australian helmet, yes. After looking up his number I just assumed he died in Australia, but googling further found out he died in the UK. That's why his helmet was here, but at just 22 years of age, what a waste, like so many others.

    Great find Aaron, a lovely helmet with all that history ( even if it is a sad story). If it were ever re-issued, it still does not take away the powerful history that is known for sure about it's one time owner F/Sgt Scott. Leon.
