US NAVY M1 HELMET D-DAY – QM PROPS

(2H023)

A US Navy M1 Helmet marked as for D-Day 1944.  The helmets were originally marked with ‘USN’ in black block lettering but were over marked with large white letters to aid visibility.  The grey band was also added to mark the wearer as a Naval Unit member.  Both the grey band and the ‘USN’ markings appeared a wide variety of stules and degrees of ‘neatness’!
