    Default M16 From The Meuse Argonne

    Hello guys , this is one of my favorite helmets , i picked it up a few months back and as i do with all my new pieces gave it a real good look over .While studing it closely i saw some words scratched in the paint on the side of the helmet , i got a maginifing glass and was stunned at what it read
    He got sgt
    And he got corp
    But we got him
    Pt Rosen
    131 Inf
    10.10.18
    I contacted the the guy i bought the helmet from in the states , he owned it for 25 years and never new it was there , iv since done a little research and have found the 131Inf was in the Argonne at this time , i have writen to a guy in the states that knows alot about division ect with pics and info and are waiting to here back from him , cheers Raymond

    Raymond, you have excellent collecting interests. This is the most incredible helmet that I have ever seen. To have that history scratched into the surface is just phenomenal!! I am very jealous (but in a good way )

    Raymond, What a find, if you could link up Pvt. or Pete Rosen with the 131 st it would be incredible. Would be great to hear how you make out. You can go so many ways with this one. Good Luck, John

    Fantastic helmet.
    Judging from the number of holes in it, they made sure
    that they really "got him".
