    Default Japanese Sun Helmet

    Another item of my expensive day yesterday. It was like Christmas morning except I had to pay for everything..Eitherway a very happy day.

    Really liking this pick up! Don't see them often.

    A really minty IJA Tropical Sun Helmet. A few small stains on the back but otherwise perfect.

    Weather was not good so pictures are a little washed out. Sorry.

    Can anyone help with the translation so I don't have to ask the wife? Looks like it is named also!

    Does anyone know the model #? I've seen it referenced as a model 90 but not sure if that is right?

    Any and all commnets welcomed!

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    I can read that it was made in Showa Ju Hachi Nen(18th year of Showa) which is 1943.

    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...

    Family name is Arai ... there is a third kanji that is illegible.
