Opinion?? Captured English Pith helmet

Hi all, another headgear that I'm looking to purchase is this English made Pith helmet. It is from a local trusted seller who obtained this from a German POW vet's estate, along with other Afrika POW items. The POW was captured in Tunis. Now I know there are a lot of foreign reissued pith helmets out there, but I have not seen a English one, and I know nothing about these. I want to ask what do you guys think of this? Thanks in advance!!

Ran

Badly water damaged Allied helmet that someone as added a German shield post war to soup it up $, would pass on something like this. See this many times with Allied & Italian piths with German shields attached post war.

Don't by the story by the item....
