That's a new one!!! I would say no on the decal, purely because of the wear marks on the decal, that white mark across the rune looks odd to me
As a Ex servicemen with PTSD, I see this quote in a different context
"Enjoy the war, as the peace will be unbearable"
I agree with a no on the decal as well, round bottom and runes look wrong. Made up lid by the looks of it.
Thank you for the opinions guys. I for sure had my doubts on this lid.
Very strange pitting in the decal yet none elsewhere on the helmet, yeuk
Reminds me of those 'Egypt' contract lids that came out of Czechoslovakia after the war.
Don't know about these Andy. One thing i wondered about was what do you need a net on desert helmet for? Maybe they used a net i don't know, but the net is not 70yrs old.
Also liner and strap? Just for curiosity
