    James...I can’t add anything mate....’never seen one like that...great piece. The liner fibre looks like the old Brit frame chopped about...and the leather bit defo looks “Eastern”.......

    Thank you Steve for your comments and hope you are well my friend ,as far as i know there are other examples of this type out there so not just a one off ,the hole shown centre up front would be for the frontal communist star insignia which i added a suitable example for display purposes

    Thanks Ade for looking over the extra pictures of the liner suspension ,looks to be a similar material as found on the red spider type liners for the Brit Turtles in my opinion

    All good at my end, thanks for asking, I hope it's the same with you. I'm not doubting to originality, just wondering if they used actual shells that may have been picked up from other post war conflicts and refitted them or made copies of the shell.

    Hi Steve that is good to hear and yes we are doing ok here thanks i should of mentioned earlier that this latest example is a similar material to the US OPFOR and made of quite a flimsy PVC type of material and so easily distorted ,I think you could be right on there being a mould taken from an actual shell to make copies as it is a very accurate rendition .If i find anymore details on these British Army Opposition force helmets i will update the thread but at this present time there doesn't seem to be much info out there on them.
