    Great pick up,remember last year a whole batch like these being sold on ebay by the same seller,apparently came from a closed down Yacht yard,all the same red paint but differant markings on each one,I like it but haven't a clue about the KID stamp,but looks totally original,well done either way...............
    With Regards Jake.

    This looks like it might be a Army range officer's helmet. KD is the abbreviation for the Known Distance range and it looks the the "i" might be a subdued 1LT bar.
