    You are right on the air wardens emblem being reversed. As for the helmet, it has split rivets so it was likely British made. The stamping is crude and probably added afterwards for identification purposes by whatever organization used it.

    All of the US Civil defense helmets I have run into have a white base paint to them and have stampings of US property and OCD for I believe office of civil defense. Also the liners were a web setup da looking like an M1 liner. Not sure what to make of yours.

    Never seen a British MKII with rounded lugs like this or this type of liner. Maybe a refurb of a WWI example.

    Whatever its just an opinion.
