    This is a fantastic thread and great pictures.
    I think the helmet in the fire contains cartridges with the bullets removed, it is then placed in the fire to heats it burning the gun powder/cordite out of the cartridges and making them inert. The heat of the fire is probably too low to cause lasting damage to the helmet, unless of course it still retains some of the original paint. Argh!!! The heating and cooling (expanding and contracting) of the helmet also probably helps to remove some of the surface rust.
