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 D0032.
The Helmet is possibly a Mk3C or a later Mk4 but this needs to be determined.
