    hi folks just to share my latest helmet i am hoping some of you out there can help me with a few questions firstly how to positively date the lid if possible ,the serial number is 5965-99-620-3251 and secondly it has black D on the front and rear in a kind of rubberised textured paint does anybody know what this denotes also the liner and inside the matching bag is dusted with a fine powdery light coloured sand is it likely to have seen action overseas thanks in advance james A vehicle crewman helmet  008A vehicle crewman helmet  010A vehicle crewman helmet  012

    A very nice helmet,used to have a boxed unissued example but stupidly sold it a long while back Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

    Gemini,this would be no good for you as the jacket you have is the US Tankers jacket who used a different type of helmet.

    Very nice example James, these were issued in the 80's I believe, it is nigh on impossible to date British lids from the NSN numbers, but I did find this info for you from the Imperial War Museum.

    Good point Mate, I never spotted that when I came across it, maybe a typo, or it was used after the peace agreement on the islands ????
