    Thanks. Just noticed that the way its come out isn't the same as the preview, so the left/right directions don't work! Oh well, just take it in sequence.

    colt45, correct, known, not as a Pickelhaube, but as a Kugelhelm ! Kugel meaning ''ball'' (as in cannonball), as Pickel is ''point''. DPWICK, splendid helmets ....
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
