WW II Military used colored helmets?

Recommended Posts

My buddy uncovered these three helmets the other day. No real vet history, was in a homemade footlocker when purchased at a yard sale years ago. Also in the footlocker were some assorted US Army WW II uniforms parts and jackets. None of these are military contract. The leather one has snaps that say The Eaglet Helmet, but no tags. You can see close ups of the tags on the other two. We were wondering if these may have been military used. I know the Navy used colored helmets for aircraft deck crew. Did the Army ever do that anywhere? These just might only be soap box derby helmets. Comments welcome, Thanks for looking!







More to follow.

Thanks for the info guys. I suspect these probably were not used by a military person, but wanted to get some opinions from people who have a lot more experience studying military aviation history than me.
