    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    But the helmet is really heavy one, and that kind of helmets was really used as a combat. I did show sometime ago this helmet here, with battle damages, and the picture where this helmet being worn by combat troops. Most of this helmets was found in the positions near the Leningrad, at the Nevskiy Pyatachok

    Are Your sure these helmets are of Russian production? Similar helmets were used in Estonian army and many weapons, uniforms etc. were used in 1941 by Red Army.
