    Default My Kid's Lids

    Here are my kid's helmets. We finally got them all up on shelves. Nothing special up there yet, several are relics, but my son is pretty proud of them. Most of these have been posted on the forum, in one thread or another, over the past year or so.

    Top row left to right:
    1. M1917 with liner and chin strap; 2. M1917 “reject” training helmet (no liner); 3. Canadian MKII with liner and chin strap; 4. British MKII shell, repainted and lined to Dutch Civil Defense; 5. Portuguese M1916 Fluted Helmet (no liner of course); 6. British MKIV with liner and chin strap; 7. German M34 civil shell (This was the very first helmet he picked up and started this whole mess!); 8. Italian M33 shell remnants of specialty emblem and post war Khaki paint; 9. East German Paratrooper; 10. US Civil Defense “OCD” with liner.

    Bottom row left to right;
    1. Italian M15/16 Elmetto relic (Spanish Civil War); 2. Italian M33 with rough liner and chin strap (Spanish Civil War); 3. Swiss M1918 (First Type); 4. Swiss M1918/43; 5.

    I think we’ve got all these helmets ID’s correct (with much help from various WRF members) but if not, I’m sure someone will step up and put us back on track!

    Thanks everyone, I'll pass on the Kudos to the kid. We're heading to South Dakota for a week and plan on spending part of that time searching through small town antique stores. I'm sure we'll manage to bring home a few new treasures!

    Great little collection! I love how you guys alternate helmets that are on stands and just resting on the shelf. I've got to do that with my collection because of a lack of space.

    Could you post a better picture of the "2. Italian M33 with rough liner and chin strap (Spanish Civil War)" in the 2nd picture? I was in an antique store in Siena, Italy and passed up on one of these... I think?

    Keep up the great work, guys!
