    This helmet is really solid despite it's looks. Hopefully it lasts many more years. I always wonder about the soldier who wore it.

      Fascinating piece of history! Now is that barbed wire around the helmet? As non-collector but still a history buff, I do not recall seeing that before...
    2. jonnie jonnie, 4 years ago
      Yes, its barbed wire. From what I have researched this was often used to stick leaves or brances in for camouflage.

      Thanks Jonnie. That is fascinating, and now it makes sense.

      That's a great piece, I've never seen one like that either! :^D I'll have to tell some of the guys that collect WWII items about this. Thanks for showing! :^)

      Here's a War Relics Forum talks about these dug Helmets, might be interesting!

      Hope this helps, if you haven't seen it already! :^)
