    I spent half an hour searching as well. No luck..
    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie

    It's obviously a hand painted symbol-no doubt referring to the Finnish Ski troops and perhaps even mingling the German Eagle in with it as well. Finnish helmets can be a real nightmare to collect and research, due to the large number of hand embellished pieces that were used. Here is a link to a short article on them that speaks of this abit more.

    Oxalic acid is great for removing rust from helmets. 5 minute treatment and that's it, wont affect paint unless its water based. Would recommend for first helmet.
    Pity that last one has been sand papered, amateur work.
    Example, same helmet one I once had.
