Does anyone know what the b-52 means on this helmet? The helmet is named to a Gilbert Wilson, the only person I could find was a 2nd Lt. Gilbert wilson with the 301st BG 352nd squadron. The helmet is a Schlueter fixed bale witha heat stamp of 11a. There is a green wash on the front of the helmet, maybe to tone down the name and rank, just a guess. The liner is a inland liner with a pinned Lt. Bar on the front, the liner has seen better days. Any help would be great.
