    Great addition to add to your collection James! If only this helmet could talk, I think it has a high possibilty to have been used during the Northern Ireland troubles back in the early 1970's, it would make a nice display to recreate the soldier on the magazine cover from 1972.

    The riot gun the soldier is holding is the US-made FED riot gun. My preferred weapon was the Webley riot gun, with the FED as a spare. I believe that the Webley was a variant of the line-thrower, although I could be wrong.
