    Default My mint WWII Wilson made Tankers helmet. All decked out and ready to use on a Sherman tank

    This tankers helmet came from the mint stash that was found in India many years ago. It is from the less common Wilson maker and is a somewhat larger size 7 3/8. I took a suggestion from my wife who says "It always pays to accessorize" and added the headphones, goggles, a lip and a throat microphone. The last picture
    shows a push to talk switch for the microphone and the two different lanyards that were designed to carry the switch around the neck.

    Looks great! I have the throat mics for mine, but still need to work on getting the earphones and the push to talk switches.
