    Glad you liked it Roger . I thought it was worthy of a post . And it showed military collectors in a good light . And 30$ for a named helmet wasn't too bad either !
    Cheers Chris

    When our wives tell us they're sick of our "junk" this is what keeps us going. This is what it's all about!

    A great story indeed! Great luck, too, that the man was still living. Sadly, all that remains of the legacy of some veterans are descendants who don't understand or care about what their ancestors lived through.

    Maybe this is the real reason that the collector returned it.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
