Brings back memories of THE LONGEST DAY, A BRIDGE TO FAR and a few others, as you know this is a tough one to get especially in decent condition... Soldier has put his I. In here and unit number..Looks like it may have been used by more than one man, looks like he kept a jump tally inside the liner... This is wartime sorbo rubber lining, non magnetic shell, stamp on back part of leather liner 1 AIRBORNE TROOP RCE or RCB last letter is there just kinda hard to tell.. You that know what this is know exactly how hard they are to locate..
I've collected WWII HELMETS for 50 years this is the only British Airborne I've had that was in this good of condition... This is the second model with the weave texture harness. (personally i like this better than the leather) tips of the harness are black anodized as should be, BMB MANUFACTURE 1953... I've had Dispatch and Armored Corp Helmets but this is only the second Airborne that I've owned...This helmet is getting way to hard to get... I can go on and on but if you have any questions please ask if I don't answer right away I will get back.. I didn't want to let this one go but its being called upon once again to help. I added an original British Helmet Net. I'll consider an offer but not a lowball... If your familiar with these helmets then you know how hard they are to find in decent original condition and this one exceeds good..
