    parachutist helmet ? Empty parachutist helmet ?

    Post by ripcord Sat Jan 14, 2023 2:16 am

    Have had this old Kevlar helmet since the'80s and have always thought it was a British Parachutist helmet.

    Lately, I've tried researching it, but to no avail. It has M4 written in marker on the front and back of helmet.   Anyone have an idea of what this could be ?  Thanks ..

    It looks externally pretty much the same as my smooth shell British Para helmet. I assume any identifying labels that would be on the inside are missing.
