Early Flight Deck Helmet (Pre-Cranial)
Plain green cloth helmet, the predecessor to the modern-day cranial helmet. Worn throughout World War II, the Korean War, and the early Vietnam War by some anti-submarine warfare carrier crew members. These helmets offered minimal protection compared to modern helmets but were lighter and more comfortable in hot environments.
