    Bullets do some pretty strange things when they hit a helmet.

    What your seeing is the result of a condition called spalling, the round has entered from the side rear and seperated upon impact most of the round has entered the helmet but a fragment has remained outside and skimmed the front area, not exactly a richochet

    Nice looking Helmet with plenty of history !!

    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
