1956 dated British Airborne forces steel parachute combat helmet.  It has a dark two tone brown and green textured camo paint job with various signs of flashes and numbers on the side and also to the rear as well as traces of more than one name inside it.  Shell is made by ROC and the liner by CCL.

I picked up two more HSAT's since this one, both WWII examples, one just a relic shell with wartime paint on the inside and post war paint on the outside, with some serious dents in the top of the dome.

 

Second is a 1944 BMB marked example with a few coats of post war over paint and a flash on the side.  Inside it is marked to a member of the Royal Engineers Squadron with an army number from 1964 and also a number 41 as well as 5 white stripes to mark his jumps done.

Cool Jerry I still have a wartime dated post war used helmet that looks similar.

As cool as an untouched wartime example would be, I do like those that saw service for the longer period.
