Dean..
I was also a construction engineer..
I had a pith helmet issued to me when I was posted to Sardinia ,Italy in 1969..
So there are probably s few still kicking around..
Mine was of WW2 vintage but repainted..
I tried it on a few times but never wore it on base or as part of my day to day uniform..
Could have used it a time or two,but usually found shade in the mess when it got too hot..which was often..
