This Helmet was probably used for evaluation of the Ferranti Night Owl Night Vision Goggles. It has a Night Owl sticker on the top and eight screw holes at the front when the NVGs may have been attached; however, it is not the same helmet type shown in the brochure DDBR0032.
Within one of the earphones is a Dymo label: "ADD 006" and also earphone bears the label:
NATO No. 5965-99-954-3067
Brit. Pat. Nos. 897873 & 791660
Denis Ferranti Meters Limited,
Bangor, North Wales."
The Helmet is possibly a Mk3C or a later Mk4 but this needs to be determined.
