    Default Unidentified Helmet Can you help please- British WW II

    I can't find any British WWII helmet that approximates to this helmet, other than a British Paratrooper or Airborne helmet. I think this may be a glider pilot but I'm not sure. Photos are attached, can someone please advise?

    Hi, it is a Tankers helmet. I have shown mine on the forum in the past. There should be a date on one of the fibre liner bands

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi,
    It's a RAC,( Royal Armoured Corps) helmet, introduced in 43 I think. The chin strap lugs might have the date on aswell, or if you are lucky the date was stamped into the steel shell on the inside. The bolt that holds the liner in place is the wrong type, but you can pick those up, & as Ade said the date should be on the cross over straps on the liner, nice helmet

    I concur with all above. I too own one. Mine had either a name or number inside painted in red paint but its unfortunately undecipherable.
