    hi, its a civil helmet . this type of helmet was used in England during ww2 by civil defence fire watchers /wardens. am assuming that if this is a us helmet it served the same purpose. in my opinion 70 is a high price ,as most i have seen were priced around 25/30,,cheers paul

    i looked on ebay,up to 13 pages of 21,one was listed at 33 dollars or so,,,didnt check on any others as this was the highest price i saw for a reserve for a helmet of this type,,,little over 2 days left to bid...

    It's still an interesting piece, in that colour and with the signatures including a Captain, I wonder if your helmet was once issued to a Home Guard. Exactly why there would be signatures on it I'm not sure, maybe once the HG was disbanded it was displayed as a commemorative piece, signed by some of the people from his platoon or something?

    Who knows on the signature?

    But these helmets were not issued to the Home Guard, that much I can tell you.

    Cheers, Ade.
