This is a British (1940) helmet I have, and I put the net on it recently. My question is, is the net something that would have been worn in WWII? Thanks.

Thanks for the clarification. I am no helmet expert, and I welcome any constructive info.
This helmet was given to me about 30 years ago by the father of a friend.
He was a French military pilot who flew cargo and men into Dien Bien Phu. That much is true.
He claimed the helmet was used there, but I always suspected his recollection may have been flawed.
I know these types of helmets were used by many different nations,including the French.
As my knowledge of these types of helmets is very limited, I tend to think of them as of British origin.
Thanks again, ripcord.
