    If it is French, you must find the name of the factory inside

    Hi Kev, I BELIEVE YOUR FIRST PICTURE MAY BE A WW 2 FRENCH FLIER / PARACHUTE HELMET..MORE PHOTO'S OF SIDE NEEDED. SHOULD BE DATED INSIDE AS THEY USED THESE AFTER WW 2 MINE IS DATED 1951......THE LAST PICTURE I BELIEVE IS A SWEDISH TANKERS HELMET.......I HAVE THE FRENCH HELMET ON STYROFOAM HEAD......THE OTHER PHOTO IS FROM JIM WELD'S FLIGHT HELMET BOOK....AND THE SWEDISH HELMET CAME FROM GOOGLE.....HOPE THIS HELPS................Dave H

    Photo of Imperial German flight headgear 1904-1918 from Mick Prodgers book, Vintage Flying Helmets........ Other countries copied this design, even adding padding to the front of the helmet as the Swedish one shown above............Dave H
