    Hi Michael,

    yes I noticed that thread started tonight by Jerry and I think it's a great idea. Thanks for posting your fantastic collection. The pith I am waiting to arrive is modest in comparison and very grubby but nonetheless has a history of its own. I will post pictures of it as soon as it arrives. I have always had a soft spot for pith helmets and this will be my cheap and cheerful first.

    Cheers mate,

    Ian.
    I like grubby. Add's a history/story to it.

    Picked three of these up in the last 6 months or so. Had the German one for a few years now. Appears un-issued. My favorite is the Italian one with the plume.

    I think I overpaid for the Woolsey. $75 or $100 or so but I had some extra cash burning a hole in my pocket...

    Can't wait to see yours.

    Michael

    I have to admit that I started the thread partly because of this thread, though it was long over due IMO.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Figured that. But agree. Could be a nice reference thread.
