    oldbreedjnr, it is a Model 1963 Polish Paratroop helmet, also used by parachute forces of the DDR (East Germany).
    Prost ! Steve.
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
