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
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings

One thing im looking for is "ss" marked used bullet shells. Anyone know where i may get some?
Can anyone tell me the best way to look after this helmet. Do you guys use a light oil on them to stop any further rusting?
Don't put anything on it is my opinion.
I have sprayed matte clear acrylic on "flakers" ( helmets that shed rust bits no matter what you do ) and some on the forum say to use renaissance wax ( but thats a bugger to remove if you don't like the outcome ) but really, most helmets are perfectly good left as is in a cabinet or a dry place.
Boriss would have already cleaned it up from the dirt & gunk ( that's what he does, bless him ) so just leave as it is........
