Popski's Private Army (PPA), officially named No. 1 Demolition Squadron, was a unit of British Special Forces set up in Cairo in 1942 by Major Vladimir Peniakoff. Popski's Private Army was one of several raiding units formed in the Western Desert during the Second World War. The squadron also served in Italy.
Their vehicles were marked with this insignia, but there are no genuine helmets or pictures of helmets with this marking, indeed there are no pictures of them actually wearing helmets!
Please be aware you will need a small brush and a steady hand to be able to paint in the 'tabs' on the circle.
