    I suspect this is policing/riot helmet, and the panels used for simple troop ID, like number and unit, when everybody is done up in full gear and the situation gets hectic.
    Danish regular police does this, and since many UN missions are more police than combat missions, that same tactic would apply as well.
    Is the helmet made by Schubert or Viking, please?

    So Danish UN forces are bringing their 'own' stuff, I guess! Wink

    That is a fine and rare piece, especially in such great condition - good catch, and thank you for sharing!!
