    It's just sad seeing war relics like this....

    I don't mind seeing things recycled, but come on....doing this to a Canadian helmet..?
    You know, putting on the flowers, and Nancy-ing it all up like that..??

    Available on eBay if anyone is interested...

    This was probably done just after the war so people wouldnt be thinking of these as something worth collecting, and to be honest I quite like it, its a little bit ironic that something from a violent battle is being used as a hanging basket for peaceful flowers

    Well...come on, dude...I can understand doing that to other helmets, i think I even saw an m42 on this forum turned into a flower pot

    ...but a Canadian Lid..>?

    putting the flowers on, even all around the brim, and they looks like daisies... albeit well painted...and turning it into a sally boy lid like that....damn.

    Speaking for the rest of my countrymen...we do not approve.

    No, much easier and less disrespectfull to buy a plant pot or hanging basket and paint that instead.

    But at the end of the day, its just a the looks of things the work on it wasnt done recently so probably just after the war when this kind of thing was thrown out. I still like it none the less, its different and probably tells quite a story

    Thats what I was thinking, I can picture the soldier sitting on the boat or whatever back home wondering how he'll be able to keep the helmet without having to keep it hidden all the time......Bingo! A present for the the wife/girlfriend and being able to keep my helmet two birds with one stone
