British WWII King's Own Royal Border Regiment steel helmet. Late WWII steel helmet, which was used after WWII, the decal on the side being issued in the 1950's.
The King’s Own Royal Border Regiment was an infantry regiment of the British Army, part of the King’s Division. It was formed in 1959 through the amalgamation of two other regiments:
* The King’s Own Royal Regiment (Lancaster)
* The Border Regiment
A rare helmet, as confirmed by the King's Own Royal Border Regiment museum, they had heard that these helmets existed, but this was the first time they had seen one!!!
