    Hi Guy's,

    Pacific theatre again, this time a USMC sniper who bears a striking resemblance to Clark Gable! Anyway, looks a mean SOB, nice helmet cover too.

    Regards, Ned.

    Hi Guys,

    These men are somewhere on the eastern front. Their helmets are just sooooo cool!!!! Q1: Has anything like these been seen before and where? Q2: If one was to turn up today and pass scrutiny, would it be worth more than most other helmets, and if so how much, or, would it only be worth what an individual is prepared to pay for it?

    Regards, Ned.
    Wow..great pic Ned..would be cool to have an original one of these.

    Love that shot of the NCO giving orders....If you look closely: you'll notice that his IAB is broken. That was the problem with these decorations: many were busted and bruised as they were worn in combat!
    Great pics!

    That photo is part of a series taken in Stalingrad , on my first visit there i bought a IAB with the same damage............ !! the one in the photo !!! Probably not , maybe that type of damage was just a fault in the manufacture.
