British para HSAT MkII 1944 with flash
« on: December 11, 2017, 08:36:12 AM »
A well used and reused wartime British airborne helmet with obvious post war reuse with an off yellow paint scheme typical of helmets from the 1960's along with a unit flash probably for Royal Engineers Parachute Squadron which is written inside it along with a name and number as well as 5 white marks presumably for his jumps.
Regards,

5 lines may not signify his jumps as to get your wings you need to do eight jumps with the last being a night jump.

Could the lines be something as simple as counting down of some sorts? Maybe he was looking forward to going home or something. haha

Seems to me unlikely that you would paint that inside.  Perhaps jumps after he passed P company, or who knows, all is speculation
