    Hi Tomek,

    Great info. I'm quite certain that this is Gen. Kasprzycki. Thanks for filling in the blanks as to date and location of this photograph.



    Regards,

    Hi,

    Just thought that I would add that the Officer receiving the new regimental standard is Pplk Czeslaw Kopanski commanding officer of the 1 Morski Batalion Strzelcow.

    Though the photographic archives list it has being 17th October 1937

    Just found this info reference: Dzienniku Rozkazow MSWojsk z 1937 r. Nr 9, poz. 108. Sztandar , ufundowany przez spoleczenstwo powiatu morskiego, wreczyl batalionowi gen. Tadeusz kasprzycki w Wejherowie 17 pazdziernika 1937r.

    I hope that this helps.

    Andrzejku

    A recent auction contained these pics worthwhile posting here of a very early and rare wz.31/50. The later and more commonly encountered wz.31/50’s used a liner that required the drilling of two additional holes in the shell.

    This initial batch retained the three liner rivets and were essentially identical to the pre-war ‘combat’ versions, only that they used a wz.35 liner with the added crown strap and ‘pillows’ with blue coloured fabric. Of course, the other difference common to all wz.31/50's was the absense of the characteristic pre-war anti reflective ‘salamandra’ finish.

    Here's a pre-war wz.31 that has just sold on Allegro for 2347zl (704USD; 477GBP). Missing the chin strap and one if the liner "pillows", but an otherwise nice survivor with largely intact original finish.

    Well, if you can’t put any pictures of a nice wz.31, then maybe of your wife? . . .

    In all seriousness, keep on the hunt and you'll find a nice wz.31 survivor. A good one will eventually come along. Perhaps consider enlisting the help of your wife's relatives in Poland.

    If at all possible, be sure to post any prospective purchases here as these are also subject to manipulation by unscupulous sellers.

    Oh, and welcome to the forum !

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Here's a wz.31 that sold earlier today, apparently a 1937 dated product of the Ludiwkow factory. This one seems to have a strange looking salamandra finish and paint colour, perhaps exacerbated by use of the flash. In any event, a steep price for a helmet in this condition.

    Regards,
    T.

    PS contrary to the seller's description, the wz.31 helmet was issued prior to 1936

    To all with knowledge of the Wz.31, considering the rarity of this helmet, especially sold outside Poland, if i managed to find one, say in good condition how much do you expect the sale price to be?

    Would a little of 600 uk pounds be a bit of an overprice or what would be expected as an average this days?
