    Thanks Gents

    For me the question still remains if it is blood in the inside, where the shrapnel came in. It isn't necessarly a deadly incomer but it could give somebody a good headache. What do you think, i would like to hear some other opinions.

    I can make better pictures of that

    In my opinion it could very well be a blood stain, the impact of the shrapnel probably has blown of the helmet from the wearers head so not much blood was “spilled” on the liner, its only a theory though because the impact could well have taken place when the helmet could be situated on the ground, who knows.

    Thanks for your notice. I have compared it with some other m35 helmets and i think you're correct.

    here the other helmet. It's a british helmet with two decals. One is painted on the lighter green colour and the other is painted on the dark green colour.
