A few helmets

Article about: Here are a few helmets recovered by myself I like to show you! They all come from a place where the canadians ditched them in 1945 in Holland. The helmets contain 70-80 percent of the origin

    Thanks! This is my share, of the total of 150. I sold already some and I regret it, no more for sale im sorry.
    Amazing find, were you not worried the hole would capsize on you?, also you might have thought all that steel would have been recycled even in them days.

    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
