British WWII Civil Defence helmet. This one is super rare; you are unlikely even to see one in a museum! Civil defence pressed fibre helmet, made due to steel shortage, many of these were made without the steel, however, this one has been reinforced with a shaped steel plate on the top, to add a little extra protection. LDW stamped on the chin strap, not sure if this is to id the owner with initials or to id the unit they belonged to.
