    German mess kit from Narva front. The name reads Drews, can anyone say something about the soldier's possible nationality?

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    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

    Ouch!

    Not enough Advil in the world to cure that headache!!

    Still a great lid and good pics - thanks for posting.

    I wonder, which projectile/grenade shard made the metal bulge outwards (unless the lid was hit inside the helmet shell), but then I guess strange things happens, when metal flies this away and that way.

    Maybe the sheer force of the impact of the small projectile made it bulge outwards a bit.
