US M1 Helmet - British use Korea.
WW2 production US M1 helmet featuring a British Major's rank insignia and 1st British Commonwealth Division, United Nations Force in Korea formation sign to the side. Later war production M1 with front seam and flexible chin strap loops, contemporary brush repaint with applied divisional insignia and the application of a two loop Major's rank insignia to the shell. Liner unaltered with typically post 1943 production features. Part of a now sadly split group of affects to an anonymous British officer that either served alongside US forces in Korea or who just preferred a US style helmet. In good, used condition. Unusual.
