Is this an Imperial German flying helmet?

Article about: Good afternoon, all I have had the helmet illustrated below for as long as I can remember. Thus I can't remember when or where I acquired it. I believed - although I cannot now remember why

    Thank you, kradman - but oh dear. Just as I thought the net was closing, it seems to be opening wide again! Does the T3, below the crown, provide any help in narrowing the field?

    Thank you, Tomas. The helmet on the Swedish digital museums website looks the closest by far to the helmet which I have. Do you know if that helmet is military or civilian? But whatever, how a Swedish motorcycling helmet found its way to the UK is quite a mystery!

    I'm afraid that I have no command of Scandinavian languages, so it would be most helpful, Tomas, if you could translate into English:

    - norrlands trängkår (from your last post)
    - Skinnhuva för MC-ordonnanser. 1940-tal. (from the summary of the item on the Swedish digital museums website)

    With my thanks in anticipation.

    Many thanks, Adrian, I hope that Tomas returns to answer my questions because google translation offers no result for 'norrlands trängkår'!

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thank you to all here who have helped to provide an identification of my helmet.
