Got this at a Military show about 20 years ago. The guy selling it got the grouping from an estate sale. The chin strap on the helmet is broken, but complete. Helmet also has a big dent on the side, looks like a large piece of rubble hit it or shrapnel.I had never seen a green band on the lower left sleeve before. He has two over seas stripes sewn over the green silk band. According to the guy who sold me this uniform, the family said that this guy was a sniper durring WWI, and the green band singles him out as a sniper. I have not found any information backing this story up, nor have I ever seen another uniform with this kind of marking. Any help would be appreciated.
