    hiya
    james c your helmet looks like its from the Iraqi 12th armoured Division, us brits took them on. ive got a pic of T-55 that I took with the same insignia on, but wont upload here so ive put another on of the same division. depending which way the triangle apex was pointing depended on which brigade it was. markings on front of turret

    Iraq Helmet from the 1st time round 1991 Basra.
    (Ignore the "pineapple" propping up the lid.)

    Fibre type .. with Net ... and sand ... and rust !

    since your helmet was captured back in 1991 Basra, that proves this type of Iraqi made helmet existed way before 2003 , they should call this the M80/90 judging by the weathering and aging this helmet must have been mfg before 1991

    thats a very good point battlegear and the liner certainly looks like it backs up the earlier issue date given ,there is still a great deal to learn about these helmets
