    A Grisly relic, for sure. Always keep in mind that this young man of 24 years-an age when he should have been getting married and having a family of his own-came from the other side of the planet to liberate your own and the other countries of Europe from their oppressing occupiers, and gave his very life for that effort. This could well be Why there were no surviving relatives to Find. The family line could quite simply have Ended with the death of young Charles...Undoubtedly, his helmet was recovered from the Exact spot where he gave his life. How terribly tragic.

    That photo of the liner with 'Charles E.' and the bullet hole sent chills down my spine. What an intense reminder of the sacrifice these men made.

    I am now very curious to know why his last name was not written,
    and exactly how the name was inscribed on the liner. It looks
    like it was done with a Dremel !

    Interesting helmet, but can it really be attributed
    to this man.........?

    Let me guess, that's because of my other topic?
    His last name? I really don't know.
    I was a tool I think with a thin peak because of the precision of the name?
    Attributed by the man because of the name?

    If these are yours - or a collector friend's pieces - trying to 'authenticate'
    them by inscribing names and such onto the items does not give
    more provenance, but actually ruins or destroys any history
    and value of the things,

    which in turn destroys any respect or credibility one might
    have or want to aquire.........
