    Cheers Nuno. I knew it was post war and continental but I was unsure if it was Swiss or maybe Italian or something but I looked it up in a book I have so gotta be a winner.

    Good price for this lid. It is rusted and scratched a bit - but the price was right, IMO.
    Some sellers mistakenly call these 'Swiss Paratrooper's helmets'.........

    Makes you wonder how something like this ends up in an antiques center in west Wales.

    I am always surprised by the things you can find in antique stores and flee markets. Especially flee markets.
    Sometimes a stall at a flee market only got one militaria item and that makes you wonder. Especially if it is only one helmet, an antique gas mask or a similar item without much use apart from display.

    Hi James,

    I had a look on Ebay for the camo cover and they are 5 inc P&P, but I probably won't get one, as it is "as found" and it sort of defeats the object of buying it cheap, as you can buy the helmet with cover for 20 euros.
