Often one of the unsung heroes of WW11, a helmet worn by a nurse at the Royal Air Force Hospital on Silloth RAF airfield in Cumberland and Westmorland. Helmet was needed as it was bombed a few times. Two holes in the rim denote lower grade steel. The helmet has also been overpainted in a darker lacquer to subdue its original bright white colour.

    Thanks for looking, walksoftly, Pop-abides, Manikin, ttomucker, BELLIN68, by the way the hospital is still there, but is now a school. The bomb craters are still in the field behind it !!!

    Thank you Aimathena, for the love and comment, I have been asked this before, but helmets are too small, or head too big !!!
