India Army Composite helmet


Recommended Posts

This is a helmet from the India Army. It is in rough condition but still pretty cool. 
 

Took me awhile to identify the Country.

Wow! Super interesting! The general shape looks a lot like the American WWII helmet. Out of curiosity . . . how were you able to ID it as Indian? I would think that took you a bit of work! :) Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for your comment. 
 

Well I stumbled across an image showing this helmet worn by the Indian army while researching Iraqi helmets used during Desert Storm. 
 

The two rivets on each side that secure the chinstrap were the features that I used to find a match. You will notice that the two rivets are not level.

 

Here are some examples of the India helmet.
