    Looks like a swedish helmet
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    the three slots are also a hallmark of Japanese helmets ,this would of been where the frontal insignia was mounted and the side slots are for retaining the liner ,i imagine the large angular shape would of been the location of the the postwar insignia i cant quite pinpoint which country would of used this postwar but would rule out japan, regards james

    Absolutely a Thai rework of the Japanese M32. I found one of these some years ago and created this temporary query page for it (never deleted, must do some housekeeping!) - Picture_40

    Dave Powers' note may be interesting to you, Kradman.
