    I'm going to be thinking about this all day now.

    Possibly the Dutch M16.

    Dutch M16 was used in the may 1940 campaign by Dutch forces. Later used by Germans in the Luftschutz role.

    Definitely war time use!

    Thanks, I think your Vickers M27 is the best one so far.

    Indeed, all of West Germany's steel helmets never saw any combat use.....unlike its M826 Gefechtshelm (Kevlar) which first saw use in a combat area in 1993 in Somalia, seeing limited action with various UN missions throughout the 1990's until the Bundeswehr's involvement in Afghanistan in the noughties.........But the Irish Vickers gets my vote !
    Prost ! Steve.

    I heard Iran purchased helmets from West Germany in the 1970's during the Shahs reign, and also used them during the Iran - Iraq war era

    Swedish M37 would be one I think.
    Issued from the late 30's until the early 90's.

    Swedish UN forces used M37 in Congo/Katanga conflict. Early sixties.

    Swedish helmets (and not just the M37) were used in the WW2 period Finnish/Russian wars, too. Best Regards, John
