Very odd helmet

Post by Nevb » Thu Jun 14, 2018 3:41 pm

Could anybody shed any light on this odd helmet. It is covered in green hessian sacking type material with a wire mesh over the hessian. There are no cockades and the interior is lined with the same hessian sacking. I’m assuming it’s a copy am left wondering why anybody would bother to make such a dowdy copy leaving off the cockades.
