British Combat vehicle crewman's helmet
« on: June 22, 2017, 02:33:35 PM »
My first composite helmet is the CVCH with desert camo overpaint and complete set of headphones and mike. Helmet is made by National Plastics and the headphones by Racal Acoustics England.

I am not sure what date this is exactly but 1980's is about correct I think, though it seems to be a bit confusing from a search, as was a search of the NSN code # 8415-99-652-381

Nice. I've got an example of the similar US CVC equivalent, complete with comms gear...ex Iraq war with a thick hand-applied coat of a textured sand coloured paint. Can't recall if I previously posted it on the forum...I must take a look and see.

This is me wearing one in the turret of the Sherman which became "Fury".

And a lovely example it is Jerry nice to see the tan over paint speaks to it being worn in the theatre of operations and or the field..
