    That's a new one to me, looks too well made to be a and too big for a childs play helmet. Liner looks well made too. Hope someone here knows something about it. Are you sure its wood and not some type of composit? Can't really tell from the pic. I'd like to see opinions on this one too. John

    Hello-I would think it may be a film prop as the former Czechoslovakia had a very strong movie industry. The only military use would be training or ceremonial but if you had the real thing available then why a wooden one?-which is the question I suppose.

    well, im not sure, but it could be a composite material. it is very woodlike though.

    it came from a surplus store in montreal and he had 6 or 7 of them. i got the one that was in the best condition. they were all pretty banged up. all he said was that it was slovenian WWII era. considering that the country of slovenia didnt exist then, i found it kinda odd. i am guessing that the red star is for yugoslavia.

    Whoops!-did I say Czechoslovakia-I meant Yugoslavia-also a very strong film industry in the communist era-possibly helmet is a theatre prop?
