British WWII Auxiliary Fire Service Senior officer steel helmet. Auxiliary Fire Service was changed in later WWII to the NFS, National Fire Service. Senior officer denoted by the white band around the helmet. This helmet has suffered shrapnel damage, probably from an exploding bomb, which shows the Civil Defence Fire Service were just as much in the front line as many combat troops!!

    I know a white band like that on the NFS was for an assistant area officer, so might be the same for the AFS.
