    A Gas Identification Officer helmet with a yellow band to donate Gas & the IO Identification Officer. I think the later paint scheme would have been a completely yellow helmet with in black GIO.
    Both helmet & liner are dated 1939 the shell made by BMB the liner HELMETS Ltd.

    That's a nice helmet, there can't be many of them around.
    Here are some other GIO helmets that have been on e-bay at one time or another.

    Thanks for showing those, that red ones a nice one. Red was discontinued on helmets from 1942 & the diamonds would have been replaced by the black bands over the top of the helmet. The GIS ( gas identification service ) is neat too.
