Rare British Expeditionary Force WWII steel helmet. Helmet manufactured for WWI, with sharp edged rim. Re lined prior to 1939, its original WWI insignia scraped off and a decal of WWII Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Unit applied, showing a falling German Dornier 17. Helmet has late war quick release chin strap, obviously replaced by owner later in the war. Decal quite appropriate as they have just recovered the only known surviving Do17 from the English Channel!
