    Identify insignia on ww2 Helmet

    Not a positive identification however the Wheel badge within the British Army is worn by Movement and Control Officers, normally on an armband but no reason why it should not have been painted on a helmet that I can see. I believe that during World War 2 this role was the remit of the Royal Engineers but would now be done by the Adujtant Generals Corps I suppose.

    The bar painted through the middle could be an indication of rank or appointment.

    With the huge influx of Troops and vehicles after the Invasion, Movement and Control would have become an essential requirement in order to keep the beaches moving and supply lines open.

    Regards Simon
