    Are you sure it's a 40-43? It's looking like an M18-40.

    Hi Casey,

    Yeah according to my research the M18 had the helmet band fitted fully arounfd the circumferance of the inner, And the M40 helmet band is open at the rear, as an economy measure.

    Unfortunetely this helmet is not marked by it's previous owner, as according to this book they should be. Typical ...just my luck..!

    Thanks

    Hi Mate,
    No worries, a bit of trivia for you, in the uk these lids are knocked about and adapted to use as english civil war helmets,by reinactment societies, darn shame i think, glad i rescued this one from the Royalists!!

    Cheers mate
