Pic of Helmets Being issued
I came across this yesterday on the net, I would site a source but sadly cant remember, so it is someone on the WRF's original I am sorry
Wanted to share this because there is so much going on in this picture the more I look the more I see (that sounded dumb). We have helmets with decals, the pile behind no decal, the guy issuing them has a cuff title just all around interesting to me

1st July 1916
Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

Do any look like they have chinstraps, or did they get that later or at a store?
