    Just arrived today with the following info---

    Hope you like the helmet, I acquired it in 2008 as we dropped some Afghan troops into the FOB at Sangin. One of them unfortunately left his helmet under the seat in our helicopter. There was no way I was going to track him down to return it so I kept it as a bit of a souvenir. It's just been sat in the garage for the last few years gathering dust so I thought I'd pass it on to someone else!

    Very interesting acquisition (and interesting way to acquire it).

    It looks like a Dutch M.38 K.N.I.L. helmet (intriguing that the Afghans used these rather obscure helmets!)
