Patience my friend. The war room is almost done, waiting for the lighting. :-) (You can see the wall o helmets preview on GHW in the Collections section.)
I can't see the GHW collectors area until i become a 30+ post veteran
Here is the preview shot of my new warroom, almost complete. This I lovingly refer to as the Wall O Helmets, 150 German WW1 and WW2 helmets, over half of them are SS, over 10% of the SS are reverse or double runic decaled helmets.
See if you can pick them out until I am ready with good lighting in the room in a new thread.
PS the pic was taken by a collector friend with an iPhone and posted in GHW so I copied it here.
Incredible Doug it's just like the Regimental helmet store !!! Some classics there my friend
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
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
I would pay just to stand in that room for 5 minutes.
WOW! What a collection! Thanks for the preview, I can't wait for the close ups. Cheers, Jim G.
Thanks guys, tampalam make it up here and you get in for free. There are 3 other pretty cool walls to look at as well ;-)
Closeups coming, I guess I will start a thread so I dont take over Jims uber cool thread of his helmet, which I would love to place on these shelves!
