    This is another of this past weekends finds, a 1916 Named Officers Helmet, anyone know if I can get info on the owner?

    I like the shell and from what is visible of the liner it looks real, but the liner may not be original to the piece as the pictures of the split pins suggest that they have been re bent. Jim G.

    I suspect, given the service number after the name, the Officer in question was in the Allied Forces.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Interesting, I never thought it might be an Allied Soldiers name, if it is, he must have been British as our Officers are not listed with numbers.
    I looked up that number on the Canadian Veterans website, and nothing came up.
    Is there a British website where I might be able to look it up?

    Very nice lid, Dean! (you have a great first name too, BTW) it's a bonus to have your helmet named, wether allied or axis, as well. You are a lucky fella to have five of these and most of them being camo! I only have one M16 in camo and its unit marked, but no liner or chinstrap
    Thanks for sharing this one with us. Ill have to check out your other lids. I hope you find out who signed your helmet, BTW
