British WW11 Rescue and Demolition steel helmet. As per previous post of Rescue Party helmet, but in this case helmet is black, with senior rank depicted by a white stripe over the top. With white stencilled R to front and rear. Rescue foreman. Made from lower grade steel (three holes in the rim).

    Pretty sure this is a paint scheme from the 1950's cold war, I've got a picture taken in the 50's of this exact marking on a helmet being used. Note also that this helmet was probably a home guard helmet as you can see that the original paint was textured like army helmets. But being a No.2 C would have been used by the home guard.
