    Ya rolled the dice and unfortunately it didn't turn out well.

    Adding to David's perfectly succinct reply...not only is everything fake, but the decal is fantasy.

    I find this one interesting. Yes...it looks to be original WW2 fire helmet. Can't comment on the paint without close ups. Probably post war repaint.. It was common practice to paint these white post war from what I have heard. Just my opinion

    35 Quid = $46 USD...I would buy it

    I believe these or similar helmets were used into the 70's, the later models lost the comb and were painted florescent Green.
