    ive had this helmet for a few years picked it up off a carboot sale but i havent got a clue what it is or where its from does anyone here know what it is. its made from fibre very similar to what the american ww2 liners were made from and has a paper lable inside which reads,
    CASCA PROTECTIE

    N.I.2996-64
    and what looks like a date stamp 1965

    Hello Lee,

    Casca is Romanian for helmet.

    I have seen these before. Romanian post war Fire Brigade to my mind.

    Cheers,
