Kamikaze pilots had a need for helmets until their mission was accomplished.
No?

The helmet protected the pilot of a tiny single-engine aircraft (such as the British Hurricane or the Japanese Zero) from environmental factors that hinder flying performance, specifically the cold, the wind, and the noise. Kamikaze had to reach their targets, so they had to be adequately dressed.

Many pictures of kamikaze pilots show them wearing a bandana with the Japanese flag (Rising Sun).
If they didn't wear a helmet they risked the bandana slipping, and getting the sun in their eyes ;)

When violently manoeuvring an aircraft to evade an opponent or to get into position to engage him, it was entirely possible that one's head might be dashed against the canopy which, in the case of the A6M and several other Japanese aircraft, had framed panels. Those can cold-cock a pilot or badly cut him.

Steve, you should read more pulp fiction. Some of the best vocabulary is to be found there.

At this point, bonz might be interested in googling circumstances
when kamikaze pilots where permitted / advised to return to base,
in order to live to commit suicide another day...

Trump got intelligence briefings because his staff were determined to do their jobs even if he had no intention of doing his.

Apparently Trumplestiltskin didn't like 5 page briefings, and demanded summaries on a single page. And my source quipped, not altogether joking, he was given charts and pictures.

Made all the more believable by another guy who worked on his TV shows (who claimed he was clearly dyslexic) and would not follow the prompt script claiming he was improvising.

Now how did the ex-Twiltler in chief get onto a thread about kamikazi?

The man who invented the second telephone would have been the same man who invented the first, or he would have had no way to test it.
Possibly Alexander Graham Bell, but there are other claimants.

People in civilized countries wouldn't know this but they say that when a person is being executed by injection, they swab the spot(s) with alcohol first.

Mrs Backwoodsperson and I were watching a TV programme a while ago, in which the procedure for execution by lethal injection was described. Hearing that the injection-site(s) are swabbed first was a real ‘WTF?’ moment. If it wasn’t part of such a cruel, barbaric, and tragic event it would have been funny.
