    Well that's interesting. Years ago I remember seeing German M16 and Irish Vickers helmets for sale in a market in Dublin. 'Mother Redcaps market' for those who remember that far back. Relatively inexpensive too but still out of my price range at the time. If only, if only as they say.

    The Vickers were notoriously poorly made. There's a site where an ex soldier described how he drove a bayonet straight through his helmet in disgust at it's flimsy construction. This was not popular with his Sergeant needless to say.
