    Somehow it doesn't look military but for the colour. At a complete guess could DPW be Department of Public Works?

    The longer overlapping rim seam weld is a sure sign of being British made. American made helmets had less of an overlap.

    Probably an old version of a Hard Hat used by the Dept of Public Works.
    I would say not military.
