WW11 British Navy steel helmet. Originally probably for shipboard used, painted white with insignia on the front, appears to be an anchor over a rank stripe. Appears that the owner then became land based as a simple green cammo paint has been applied. This paint easily flakes off, but has protected the whiteness of the paint underneath. Whilst some may be tempted to remove the outer paint, I want to leave it as is, all part of the helmets history.
