I have one what appears original liner and chin strap which is very dark blue or black inside and out.

I also have one somewhere which the same colour inside (db/bl) but red on the outside, which i understand was worn by fire control crew (flames not bangs).

I also have a red painted 'standard helmet' which came with WW2 dated firemans suit, which has a unit number stencilled on it, in white at the front.

I will post some pictures tomorrow if they would be of interest.

Hello Everyone, I have seen them from time to time in military surplus stores. The ones I have seen were called talkers helmets and have been painted gray, kind of a battleship gray. I'm sure you could find one if you look in the right place.

I haven't come across one for some time.

I'd like to have one for my collection though.
