    I do not speak latvian but as far as I understood these helmets are from Kurland pocket area and left there after capitulation in May 1945. Maybe some of our latvian friends can give more info. Anyway - amazing find!

    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
