    Nice collection.
    That first German one looks very decent, I like that.
    Those Swiss helmets sure looks funky. Kind of like them too though.
    Strange to think of the origin of the East German helmet. Though its still German, I guess the Volksarme wouldnt be seen dead in former Wehrmacht helmets.
    Are those dust goggles on the tropic helmet the same style as Rommel wore ('liberated' English goggles) and are they repro or the real deal?

    No repros in my collection.
    Only original items.

    Those goggles ties in well with the Africa Corps tropical helmet considering they liberated some.

    Cool collection of lids mate, love the first tommy.

    Rommel's liberated goggles looked very different to the type shown -I have a pair of the this type- and his discovery of them is mentioned in HW Schmidt's book "With Rommel in the desert".
