    Great thread!! I also like the before and after pics, great work mate. I must get there one day.

    Reminds me of something I read last night while browsing for helmets. German lid collectors will know the name of Ken Niewiarowicz pretty well, for others he wrote one of the best research books on the subject and runs the website Germanhelmetsinc.com

    Anyway, his Father was a bulge veteran with the US Army. To cut a long story short somebody found his Dad's engraved mess tin cup in the forest and got in touch through the helmet site. Very cool and worth a read, it is not a long article.

    Excellent report. I know how time-consuming it is to match up 'After The Battle' style photos and you have really done well. Many thanks for posting.
