    Apart from the mouse damage it's in nice condition!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks Gunny! Yeah and the hay is really concerning me. Was Sweden really that short of money, that they had to use hay inside those helmet pads? Even Finland afforded to use real materials after the war was over and huge war reparations on it's back :O
