Recently I bought a german M42 helmet...http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/steel-...helmet-334617/
In that deal I got some stuff for free - including this item.
Just today made some research on this item.
Looks like this is a Luftwaffe headlamp for pilots/navigators.
Headlamp is marked:
Leatherstrap and wire is missing.

Yeah I think so hard to find luft item. timothy
A rare item, by any estimate! I definitely Like it! Great find, and one much harder to obtain than even the helmet!
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
I want to see, if I can swap the headlamp for a german helmet.
Should I put it in the "FOR SALE" section?
Very nice Luftwaffe lamp - definitely an improvement on the Lion King model the Reichswehr were working with .....
