    A perfect example of how different aspects of a helmet decal / paint can survive depending on the ground conditions and the way it is lying etc etc
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    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

    Very nice. Just love how the decal looks like its rising from the ashes, a real survivor literally!

    That's a cool looking relic. An ET decal I think.

    That is a great loking relic. If you saw the inside first you wouldnt think much is left at all but its like a different lid on the outside. A perfect example of different conditions as Paul said. Well done

    I believe there was adiscussion on here a few weeks ago concerning the condition of preseved decals , this one proves the points raised, a pretty good decal preserved under the correct circumstances of soil and humidity and positioning
