They almost look to me like they could be useful for SF:

Actually, GZG's Brethren of The New Light are an even closer match

Sort of similar to the late WW2 British mkIII helmet.

Wow, it sure does look like it, though not as comical as the "experimental sun helmet".


PS. The East Germans certainly liked that high conical style, which to me also looks a little bit like a teardrop when seen from above (meaning one end a little pointier than the other):

There are a number of photos of American troops in the South Pacific in 1941-42 wearing sun helmets. They are not similar to these but more like the British WW1 style.
