    Nice find there, your WW2 M33 helmet in the mediterranean color was very common in Greece and Crete. Take a look at mine also. It's marked B 233 while yours is a T11 (if i see clearly next to the stiching).

    True I had not noticed the number close to the stitching, is marked T1, but I do not know the meaning of these numbers ....

    The markings refers to the place of manufacturing and the batch number (otherwise the production code). Mine is B which is the factory Bassano di Grapa. Yours, perhaps is an AT (and not T) which is the factory Arsenales Turin.
