SPH Helmet Identification


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to identify the provenance of this SPH-4 helmet with a horse head on the visor cover. My best guess is that it comes from an USMC squadron. Can someone identify it ? It has a clear visor. Is it the right configuration when using NVG googles ?

 

Thanks,

 

Phi

Maybe HSL-46?

 

 

There are quite a few USMC/USN squadrons that use a horse for their insignia so this might me a tricky one to track down.

Id say def USMC that it looks to have the velcro strips on it for a camo helmet cover, maybe from a HMM or HMH squadron. It should be a SPH-3C helmet and has the ANVIS visor housing. Any pics of the back showing the ICS cord setup?

You are right: it seems to be a SPH-3C modified with a single visor. I found holes in the shell wcovered with reflective tape and they match with the double visor et up.
