Default 3 Maritime Artillery, Original WW2 Helmet Decals

Not something that is seen too often, I would think. A whole stack of them in the original envelope that they were sent out in. Water slide decals as far as I can tell.

I am rather happy to add them to the wartime effects I have from my late relative.

I’ve never seen them before. A really great find! Were they for use on the steel helmet ? D.J.

Very nice. They look they are from the series produced by Gale and Polden.

An example is in GregN album with some additional details and other examples of Gale & Polden products both unused and on helmets.
