M 33 tropical helmet

Hello friends
here is my first axis helmet I want to show you.

It is an Italian M33 helmet.

It belonged to 226480 DVR WOODS RASC G.O.C. Staff, Main HQ ,8th Army M.E.F. It was taken as a souvenir in North Africa where the veteran, an 8th ARMY DESERT RAT was stationed with the RAMC.
I bought it from the deceased veteran's family.

The paint is the genuine wartime North africa (original grey green inside). The rivets and any parts of the helmet have never been touched.
the rivets are the second type (wartime type), the liner has the typical midwar " = " sewing and the shell is marked "MM 52"

It is a very rare " it has been there " helmet.

Ciao
