Description:

Seldom seen, good condition all original Thai/Siam converted Type 90 helmet, good clean insignia.
Does not include chinstrap, one of the interior french style liner arms is slightly damaged otherwise all good.
Pictured in red are what I could find of the helmets markings, I believe it is a small size helmet though I am unsure.

Only two other that have been for sale recently, one sold for £300 in the US and currently is one for £560 in worse shape on ebay.

During WWII Thailand held some of largest Japanese Military bases. If you were a nation occupied by the Japanese in WWII you find yourself awash in Japanese military materiel upon their surrender. Suddenly your army (such as it is) has lots of helmets. During WW2 these helmet were re-issued to the Thai army standard helmet with symbol "Chankra" (Inscription in Thai : "Sacrifice for fatherland ") and interior was altered to accept the French M26 liner and chinstrap.

£210 posted, £200 collection
