The standard naval helmet was the type92 steel 'tetsubo'. This was the same helmet used by the army and differed mainly in having an anchor device on the front instead of the army star.

Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
They stood and Earth's foundations stay;
What God abandoned these defended;
And saved the sum of things for pay.
