"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."

Little delay on the entire helmet photos, gents. Most shots work out well but one angle I am having trouble with. Trying to get fancy with my wife's top-end camera equipment has me struggling but i'll work it out in the end.
I can announce that my helmet is an apparently rare, lacquered ersatz example and I can't stop admiring it! I really, really hope this doesn't signal the end of my TR collecting and a diversion into Imperial.
