    Adding to Nick D's comments, these are the main points
    1) Post war because of the different shell ( no liner rivets ) and liner support method. Also liner has perforated holes at forehead position and the wrong colour for a TR liner.
    2) wrong shade of green for ANY 1939-45 helmet
    3) water slide decals of the wrong shape & size

    As long as you can live with it, that's fine. But as you learn and see more correct helmets it may start to annoy you..........
