You have a point there! The insignia put me off the right track I am afraid. I gave my opnion too soon and not founded. I'll upload a possible candidate, I have from the unparelled site World War Helmets. .: World War Helmets - Casque Modèle 89 :.
BTW: it is not even a Slovenian insignia, but a Yugoslav Army or police variant. I was wrong on all fronts!
i initially said slovenian because of the tricolour frontal decal ,i too would be interested to learn more on it
I just corrected my earlier opinion.
A lot of Slavic nations, including in this instance Slovenia, use red/white/blue horizontal tricolours but not necessarily in the same top-to-bottom order (think of the confusion if they were all the same...). Slovenia is white/blue/red and I think all of its insignia incorporate the stylised three peaks of Mount Triglav (an important Slovene symbol). The Serb flag is red/blue/white and insignia may also feature a double-headed eagle.
It would look like Emile has located the right helmet (which I missed, unobservantly); it seems to be a later production variant of the M89 specifically for police (in the broadest sense) use. All info on the WWHelmets site as indicated by Emile. Well done that man, keeping his eyes open! As to why this helmet is army green with a police sticker (which might usually be on a dark blue helmet) on the front, I dunno boss.
