So yes i found this today and i think it might be a real WW2 war piece.. and it looks like it could well be a spitfire pilots helmet. I know its not tank related but i thought you knowledgeable guys/girls on the forum might be able to give me some more information. 

 

Thanks :)

Well, I believe it's has an AV-714, WWII British Navy Type "H" Oxygen Mask. I got a picture here. I'm quite sure it's indeed an  WWII British Aviation helmet, but dont know which one. I'll keep looking for the helmet, though.

 

Here is a picture of the oxygen mask:

Again, I'm not a 100% sure.

 

Hope it helped,

EDIT: I believe I found the helmet aswell, it's a WW2 RAF British Type "C" Aviation Helmet W/Phones-Goggles MK III-Type "H" Mask.

 

Here's a picture:

 

I believe this helmet was a quite common flight helmet used by the RAF, so it you could be sure it was used by some spitfire fighter pilots aswell.
