    I have a size 71 DD M38 FJ helmet that has a small liner in it as well. Mine is battle damaged, with a long non-displaced concussion crack on the dome, and death cut straps. The liner and straps were in the shell when I bought it in 1994 and look like they have been there since the War. I just think that the guts of the helmet were field replaced by the Fallschirmjager who wore the helmet for whatever reason. I have no doubt that the liner and straps on my piece were in the shell when it was cut off of the head of the unfortunate original owner. Jim G.

    Hi Steve, thanks for showing it. I remember seeing this one years ago.

    I never noticed the straps before, but it is an easy fix to just undo the back two spanner bolts and then cross the straps and re fix.

    Cheers, Ade.

    SteveR, an absolute stunner !... it has already been said but i'll say it again, nice to see an original, which is getting quite difficult these days with the dross thats being banded around...you saved it from a fate worse than death !
    Thanks for showing, Prost! Steve.

    Thanks Ade. Like I said Scotch whiskey will cause odd things to happen. I slapped it back together in the 70's and never thought anything about it. I drank a lot back then. Hell now that I think about it I drink a lot now too.
