Caveat! I'm not certain about my identification of 柳 willow/yanage -- the handwritten kanji is decidedly different, especially the last part that has the radical instead of 卩. However, Ichiyanagi *is* a surname.
Thank you, your input is greatly appreciated!
Helmets with Kanji is very attractive.
Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

Hi Mart , the example you have posted is a Japanese Civil Defence helmet . I would presume the anchor insignia to be a later addition .
We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
Always a little further : it may be
Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
Across that angry or that glimmering sea...
I agree. Repro badge added post war
Thanks to all for your time and review. It's nice to know what this helmet is, and what it is not.
BTW, is there any significance to the kanji on this helmet, surname and boat #2721?
