    Default Erel Vulkanfiberhelm for Export

    (Yes, I realize this straddles the line between soft headgear and metal, but I am taking Moderator license).

    As most of you know, the dagger makers regularly exported products to other countries before the war. However, this was very uncommon for soft headgear manufacturers.

    Here is an exception--a fiberhelm made by Erel for export to Chile, for wear by their army. (The Chilean army still wear German-style helmets, but they are made in country and are plastic, not vulkanfiber).

    Note the Spanish language markings:

    Here is a one with German decals used by the Wehrmacht (much lighter than an M-35).

    Now, this is something to watch out for. As you may know, Lubstein's company survived until about 1949, when it became a VEB.

    During that time, they made black Vulkanfiber helmets for the DDR fire services. These are similar to the pre-war models, and due to that similarity, are often "converted" into black SS helmets and/or
    WH models.

    This is an untouched postwar Lubstein fireman's helmet--note that they do not use the pre-war Erel logo:

    Here is a common conversion. This black postwar fire helmet has been repainted green with spurious decals added:

    Undoubtedly all the Erels have long passed their wear-out period. However, you can see how the current model still mirrors the original Vulkanfiber form (vs the M-35).

    Also note the Prussian Army influence on their uniforms--this goes back to the late 19th century, when the Chileans brought over Prussian Officers to assist them with the modernization of their army (they were impressed with their performance during the Franco-Prussian War):
