    Default WW1 Helmet w/ Liner (and a bugle)

    Bought this helmet w/ liner today at an estate sale in Michigan. I dont know anything about WW1 helmets. The original paint and finish are still there, with liner and chinstrap. It looks like at one time there were the numbers "119" stenciled on the front. The guy i bought it from said it was his Great Grandpas and was possibly an Ohio unit. Any help would be appreciated. (he threw in a WW1 bugle also)

    If this is in the wrong spot, i apologize, first time posting.

    Nice helmet.
    The helmet is probably from the 32nd division. The red arrow division made up of National Guard units from Michigan and Wisconsin.
    There were 2 units with that number:
    The 119th Machine Gun Battalion and or the 119th Field Artillery Regiment
    The 32nd spent 35 days in active sectors, 60 days in quiet sectors.
    Captured 2153 prisoners advanced 36 kilometers against the enemy, sustained 2915 battle deaths and 10477 wounded.

    Thanks a lot for the info. I just started getting into estate sales and have been amazed at what i have been able to locate from WW2. I just happened on this stuff and it was too good to pass up.

    Thanks. I usually stick to WW2, but when i came across this stuff i couldnt pass it up. The guy threw in the bugle on the deal, so that was pretty cool.

    Funny thing is, when i went to the sale it was because of the guys craigslist ad saying he would have WW2 items. Well, when i got there and asked, he said some guy came before the sale even started and bought everything up. But then added "unless you want some WWI stuff".
