This helmet is a real time capsule. It belonged to my grandfathers best friend, Harold Good SX7234 2nd/48th Battalion AIF. Harry was wearing this helmet at Tobruk, when he was shot in the head. You can see the entry and exit hole, as well as the damage to the lining where the bullet passed through. Harry always said it parted his hair, leaving a slight graze, a very lucky man. He kept the helmet as a reminder of his lucky escape. The unusual thing about the helmet is that it is a British model, not Australian. I now wonder how many Aussies in the Middle East wore these, and why? Harry passed away back in 2000, so I an unable to find ask him for further details. I have included a few photos of Harry and he is not wearing a helmet in any of them. I thought this was something worth sharing with you all.
