    At first point it's MK II with US insignia, but I'am not sure.

    Hi Sylas, any markings stamped on the shell? Have you a pic of the inside?

    Cheers, Ade.

    PS Welcome to the forum!

    Thanks Guys

    No markings. What you see is all I got. I got it in a car boot sale in Dun Laoghaire outside Dublin. I'm not a collector but it seemed a shame to let something that might have a genuine history dissappear.

    The paint is very green and thick (whats left of it).

    If it's worth the postage I'd rather pass it to someone who knows what they have.

    Hi Sylas, now you have told me that, I am certain that the insignia will be from the Irish Army. I have done a quick search, but I have not come up with which unit it is from. Leave it with me. I will ask a friend of mine from Ireland who will know.

    The helmet shell will be a British MkII. The stampings to the steel may well be covered in paint and hard to find. Don't be tempted to search for them by scraping off any paint. It is not vital.

    Cheers, Ade.

    My friend has id'ed the insignia for you. I knew he would know

    It is for the Irish Army Eastern Command.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Cheers Ade

    That's brillant. Off now to research "eastern command".

    Many thanks. That's one I owe you. Next time I'll try to give you a hard one.
