An nice early war Mk2, dated 38/39 i expect.
Belonging to the ARP wardens service.
I suspect the "W" was added at a later date!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

'tempted to agree.....'really nice WWII helmet with a suspect "W"...close-up pics would help but the white lettering simply looks too good / new / fresh. 'always a dilemma...if you had fake decals on a sweet DD M35 Luft would you dump it?...or simply upgrade when you can...I'd hold and upgrade later
It could had belonged to George W. Bush.. Or John Winston Lennon.. ?
Yes yes, a bad joke, i know but i just HAD to..
I just uploaded itīs US Brother, an WW2 US Air Warden Helmet..
i have a British one too, but its paint is dark green,and the "W" looks battered as the rest of the paint, so yes, maybe someone added the "W" to give the helmet more "mojo" and make it cooler.. But in my humble opinion, original is always better..
