Have you tried to find his service records if not there are several sites you could try like Fold 3 or Forces-War-Records/Records most of the WW2 records seem to be held on these sites.
  2. Thanks for the new information on XH helmets, your never to old to learn something new.
  3. Here we have a US M1917 helmet marked ZD75 has no liner but shell is in good condition. Photo's from other sources.
  4. And here we have a WW1 helmet FKS93 by Thomas Firth & Sons Ltd of Sheffield Both Manufacturer and Steel Supplier and Heat/Batch code 93. Photo's from other sources.
  5. Here's another WW1 rimless helmet D/F 7 made by James Dixon & Sons of Sheffield and Steel Supplier Thomas Firth & Sons of Sheffield and Heat/Batch code 7, looks like it has been refurbished has a Portuguese Legion Emblem on front. Photo's from other sources.

  9. Here's another WW2 Helmet by Harrison Bros & Howson, has the Black Cat emblem of 56th Infantry ( London Division ) shell marked HBH II 1943 and heat No 433. Also two other 1939 stamp marks note the heat code on these are 2 letters. Photo's from other sources.
  10. Here's another helmet I spotted used by a Company Officer of fire force 10 most likely Louth in Lincolnshire, looks like they never bothered to put a NFS sticker on the front but just put the rank band over the top of the f10 instead.
  11. Here's a photo I forgot I had of the other M35 helmet with SS single decal never sure if the decal was original stamped SEst 64.
  12. Yes I would have to agree, it's 80 years old and bound to have a few problems, I keep mine in a display cabinet were they are kept dry.
