    Default Helmet ID Please.

    Hello all i have just quickly found you guys/gals on the web as today when driving past a skip i spotted two helmets on the top so i go tout and asked the people filling it if i could buy them and they said they had just brought the house and found them in the loft and just gave them to me.

    I know nothing about this sort of stuff and cannot see any markings on them at all could some kind person tell me what they are please as i have been trawling the net and just confused myself !!!!!!!

    Now i have obviously posted this is in the German section but as i say i have no got any ideas so if its in the wrong section please move.

    Many thanks to those that help me on this its driving me insane not knowing about them.

    All the best

    The lid with the leather liner is a Portuguese model 940, the one with the webbing liner is a model 940/63!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Yes, definately Portuguese, as Gunny H says. If you don't want to keep them let me know!

    You can find more info on them here PORTUGUÉS 1940 and here .: World War Helmets - Casque Modèle 940/63 :.
