The Portuguese CDT helmets are either leftovers from the First World War as used by the Portuguese Expeditionary Corps at that time, or were acquired later as surplus from the UK. A very large number of them were refurbished with a very distinctive Portuguese liner (quite different to the original) and chinstrap in later years. So yes, the shells are UK manufacture, but the liners are Portuguese.
