    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

    Hi Paul,
    Very nice helmets, I like relic helmets as they all tell a good story.
    I usualy research the units that fought in the area they are found,
    thanks for showing them.

    I'm intrigued by the hole in the crown of the M42...looking at the exit-path (outwards)...I almost would suspect it was caused by the wearer shooting himself under the chin into the brain (We had a guy shoot himself like that in my unit, that's why it caught my attention). Any other guesses as to how this damage may have occurred? By the way...I am thankful for your post and the great photos...I am so envious, and wish you continued good luck!

    Some times after the visiting some of the strong points I've found a lot of strange items with a lot of holes, I think the helmets was like a baseball balls flying on the field, the battlefield looks like a moon landscape. I've seen bullet damaged helmet, which was reissued with replaced liner- and again the second owner got a shrapnel to the head. Paul E can show some of the pictures of this helmet

    Go to agree with Dimas some of the Helmets in the Battle area are severley damaged by both bullet and shrapnel damage making it unlikely that someone shot themselves in the head.

    Here is a Norwegian SS Helmet showing various types of damage,

    Dimas is this the one or is it one of the others ??

    regards
