    Default Unkown Helmet?

    Can anyone help me identify this helmet? Could it be Russian or Polish? I originally thought it may be a Polish model 1950 crested helmet, but I am not sure. I will really appreciate any help.
    Thank You

    One more question. How does this helmet differ from the regular Polish 1950 helmet? What does the crest represent? Was this helmet worn by any particular unit?
    Thanks

    the design was not well liked by the regular Polish army , so they redesigned it without the top piece

    The new Polish army wanted to regain his identity and proposed, among other measures, the usefulness of a steel helmet that would return an image to its own troops. [They wanted a design that was unique to the Polish army] but it wasnt very succesful so they decided to make them without the crest on top

    this helmet was used by second line troops

    used by Fire Brigade units and Civil Defense units
