Hey everyone!
 

I have this suspected US Navy Seabee Helmet. The Pictures should speak for themselves for this one! I have only been able to find 2 sets of initials reading, "J.H.F." on the liner headband and the interior of the shell. I'm able to review quite a few Navy Seabee Units records that contain rosters during WW2 . If I can just determine what unit this helmet could have belonged to, can then match the initials with someone on the roster potentially ! Would love to see this mystery come to a close and figure out who this sailor was and what he did during the war. Any input would be kindly appreciated ! Thanks in advance

Very cool-

I have a similar one (but different) from a sailor whose job it was to unload the Jeeps and Trucks off of the landing ships at Normandy.

Awesome! Any idea what unit the sailor belonged to? Would be cool to see your set!

That’s an awesome helmet. The saltiness is unquestionable.  My great grandpa George was a Seabee in the pacific theater. He landed with the marines on several invasions. Thanks for sharing.

It's nice to see a genuine and rare M1 that you don't have to make all kinds of excuses for or fabricate all kinds of wild theories to accept.  Beautiful helmet.  And great pictures.
