    Many thanks jake for your sound advice ,best to leave this one well alone then and thanks for the nice words glenn ,always a pleasure there is an earlier spanish helmet designated the m21 sin ala (without wings) allhough present the rear skirt is quite non descript in comparison to my later m26 example ,i too am fond of the swiss m71 its a very unusual design and the liner's are just quality workmanship ,i never realised the vickers commanded such high prices untill a few other forum members pointed this out too,i paid what would be the bps equivalent of 115 euros for this relic all the best to you for 2015 my leaned friend, thanks james

    interesting displays, I have another idea, how about paratrooper helmets of the cold War era? like East German para vs West German, US Vietnam or Grenada era para, French Legionaires, British SAS, and any other para helmet in use since the cold war era

    or just Paras / airborne forces of the world?
