    Default R.A.C. tanker's helmet

    I was sure i had already posted this major mistery in my collection, but I could non find trace of a previous post, so here I am. It's a RAC, steel, helmet embellished with an Allied Armies white star recognition sign on top, two coloured (one red, one blue) bands and tactical/rank insignia. I know it is too odd to be convincing, but I have got the feeling that this is not a faked item, mainly because I have never seen anything like that before.... Possibly a MP accoutrement? what's your opinion, gents?

    Interesting, at first I would say not original but the paint does look very well done and been there for some time. Looking forward to more comments.

    that's exactly my feeling also, Steve: could have it been for a parade?

    Nice wartime helmet, shame about the markings, from a WW2 point of view.
