    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

    I don't know if it's just me and the lighting of the photo, but the party decal on the 2nd helmet at the left corner seems really glittery to me.

    This is a definite FAIL ....... think about it, so much corrosion yet so much paint and a decal??

    It really hurts that they do these things to original helmets from the battlefields, they are ruining history.
