    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    With all the paperwork I have, does this add value to the helmet? I don't care if it does, at least this gives the helmet a solid I.D the researcher even said this is the guy

    Having history and information always adds a premium onto a piece for me! Well done on your research. Leon.

    Superb research and worth every penny! Definitely adds significantly to the helmet's value! What an excellent grouping to have! Well done!
