    What Unit does this helmet belong to?

    Recommended Posts


    Sadly no major work has ever been written which depicts the various badges/cloth flashes that were worn on foreign service helmets. As an example I was looking at some 2nd DLI photo's, taken in India 1912, at the weekend and didn't realise that like the Northumberland Fusiliers, that they also wore flash of cloth behind the pagri, although not as deep, but in dark green. On the left/right(can't remember which) side of the helmet was an oblong cloth patch with the intials D.L.I. in regimental colours.

    Have seen many such examples over the years, but sadly no references.
