    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

    Very good thread... Thank you. I would like to ask if you can substantiate the following statement in you thread:

    ""Lysva" plant postwar mugs. Trademark "ЛМЗ" in the form of intersecting letters was approved July 26, 1946."

    I ask not as a challenge, as I believe this to be generally true. However, it is a valuable piece of information for Soviet helmet collectors. I would like to understand where this very specific date came from. Until now it was only suspected that this trade mark appeared sometime in 1946.

    Best Regards,

    This information I have taken the city Lysva forum (and in some other):

    "October 20, 2005 , (LMZ plant) site received a letter:
    " I am the author of a book on Russian and Soviet combat helmets. I think that I made a big mistake in describing the producer's stamp on many SSh-39s and SSh-40. I had been told that LMZ meant Leningrad Metallurgical Factory. I have just learned of your firm's role in war production during the Great Patriotic War. If it is true that the LMZ marked in the inside of Soviet wartime helmets meant that it was produced at your firm, I will make a correction to my own web-site and try to alert the many collectors now interested in Soviet helmets of my error. I was told by a man from Perm that you have a museum that includes some of the helmets made there. Thank your for any assistance that you can provide me for this important
    historical question.

    Michael, this is a helpful and excellent thread! You can find these markings on plates and teapots too. Here is an example of a wartime shaving mug, made by ЛМЗ. Not very common:
