Hi all, guess what? Another one is on it's way! I have just bought this NFS helmet that is dated 1941, it is a bit grubby and some very old news paper has become attached to the liner, but I will have a look at whether I should ease that away or not when it arrives. I really like the overall look of this one and it is nicely named and numbered. One image shows a "red band" that may signify a higher rank but as it does not show up on the other images I think it is a "refection" from the background material that the helmet is sitting on. Either way I like this one! This home front gear is a lot cheaper than my usual Third Reich purchases and every bit as interesting!!! Leon.
