Do you have anymore information on the vet? Did you buy this from the family or do you have any idea where the vet was from? Maybe we can help track down his information.

Nice looking helmet!

Interesting helmet, even without any info yet :thumbsup: Any idea what the "ALRS" means? And is the cross on the the top paint, or tape residue?

I just find his NARA record (Reserve Corps Records)

I really don't know what ALRS means, Air Landing Reconnaissance Squadron? Alternate Landing Rescue Strip?...

I think the cross is painted but has worn away, invisible if the shell is not wet.
