I thought some of you might like to see my latest flea market pickup from Japan, I am really pleased with it, an M32 summer tank helmet. I missed it last year, and the same stall holder still had it buried in a box under the table, wrapped in news paper, with a 20% swing in exchange rates as a bonus.
Dated Showa 19 (1944), it shows some use, one of the leather flaps that covers the ear eyelets has come off.
I picked up a few other pieces including the cap and boots below before I ran out of Yen. Iím still getting to grips with some other things I found which I will post when I get a chance.
