Only the second if these I have seen outside the team, RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team parachute helmet. These are commonly known as parachute instructors helmets, though many just say Parachute Helmet on the label, whilst others say Parachute Instructors Helmet. They were almost exclusively used by RAF jump instructors and RAF pathfinders. The RAF Falcons display team was formed in 1961 by six RAF parachute jump instructors, known as the big six because all of them was fairly short in height. The team is still in existence to this day and are based at RAF Brize Norton. https://www.raf.mod.uk/falcons/displays/history.cfm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAF_Falcons
