    Talking 1000 Post Helmet World Tour!

    OK guys, it is D-Day.

    For anyone not familiar with this project, check it out here;

    The lid will be in Liverpool this week on it's first UK stop with Ronnie, try not to nick it scouse I thought the first page of this thread would be a good place to put the final list of the 'fellowship of the lid', in case anyone needs to check who they are posting to etc. The plan is for everyone to take a few pics of the helmet in a place local to them, wearing it if you like, to build up a kind of holiday album for lid in this thread. We have some good places on the schedule so far; Red Square in Moscow, Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia, so the pressure is on to find a good spot for your pics

    Here are my pics taken today on Day 1 at Blackpool Tower, and looking out over the Irish Sea. Please forgive the beard on your author

    I realised I hadn't actually signed the thing, so I did that tonight just before making this thread.

    Cant wait! I will photograph it at the U-boat memorial. And perhaps before it leaves will take it down for a coke and show it around beautiful Ireland.

    A wonderful idea, and I shall follow this thread keenly. Would love to be involved but with so much travelling in our schedule, I never know where I am going to be. Good luck with it guys, let us all hope that she travels well, with due care from all the postal companies and customs offices involved.


    Currently working on several KZ related projects, including items for the USHMM, Groß-Rosen Museum and various private concerns and studies. Available as a guide to KZ sites, contact for details.
