    Cleaned up very well

    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

    Wow...the decal really came out with the cleaning! I'm thinking that whoever was wearing this helmet had a very severe but short headache...
