Repainted civil helmet?
So I bought this helmet a while ago, it is quite small (I'm not sure what size) but the only person it will fit is my kid brother. Makes me think it may be a repainted Hitler Jugend helmet? could any shed some light on possibilities of the authenticity and origin of this piece?

Looks very much like it. I have a childs toy helmet too .... cute things!!
" When you're chewing on life's gristle, don't grumble, give a whistle "
looks like a Fireman helmet to me note the pepper top air vents and 3 leather fixing points at the rear of the helmet liner for the neck guard
I had wondered what those were, that may explain it's origin! If so, the chap who wore this had a mighty small noggin!
Here are a couple of photos so you can see what I mean
I see, it would seem you are right! (In that case, I may have to try and hunt down an original neck guard if possible!)
