    Default polish helmet identification help.

    I've just acquire this helmet today. helmet is dated 1964 the style of helmet leads me to believe that this may be a polish helmet. the Arabic writing on the in side I can not identify. this helmet came out of a guys collection. and from what i was told he served in Iraq , and Afghanistan on and off over a period of 10 years. with the Australian ADF.
    Any more information or ideas on this helmet would be great.
    thanks mark.

    Couldn't they also be Syrian or Egyptian??
    I bought one recently from Israel and I'm led to believe this is a war trophy from the six day war.
    I like the camo!!!
