Another M40 helmet -My grab grab from sandy ground(inter camo remains)
This helmet I found in area where some german troops surrener to Russian near at Estonian border...
Quite far from well known Kurland pocket-but fact is fact!
50cm deep-sandy ground...Lot of ammo laying all arounf...No eny other traces of personal items!
But -There it is.
Size is 60..not unusual-quite rare for this size...
It,s slightly cleaned and renesaice wax cower-could be cleaned bether but I preferred as allways-left the spirit as found...
As you can see-winter cammo traces haven,t been lost even during fight of summer 44!
Hope you like it as much as I do...
-..all my helmets are looking for new owners -.........................

Looking for WWII U.S. dog tags
Nice find! When I get the trowel out in Norfolk (England) all I will find are the odd fossil or a Roman coin(which is ok!!) Leon.
