A very poor rendition of a fleur de li?

Thanks Leigh,
I thought of that but the bottom part would be missing, under the gunk I can see no sign of it

Not chipped off by the look of it.
Painted on the rear rather than the front of the helmet - any chance the symbol was in luminous paint?

Hard to tell if it was Leigh,
Any luminescence has probably degraded over the years.
