    No, not salt air. The tunnels were sealed up and some areas had not been concrete lined so water was still finding its way through the rock above. Also people were getting in and emptying ammo boxes on the floor and the contents spilled everywhere and the drains got blocked. Water built up, and eventually the rot started. Be great to think that there is a tunnel full of kit that never had water get in and the atmostsphere kept the kit in good condition. I guess that would be somewhere like mg.34's came from in the Ukraine or where ever it was. There must still be tons of kit in Russia locked away, they did not dump anything. Love to have an invite to see what they have got stacked up.

    Very nice! I've seen a single decal Heer helmet named to a Kriegsmarine soldier that came from Jersey. When I see that Czech chinstrap, it makes me think that your helmet might actually have been used in the Kriegsmarine, since we usually see those straps on Navy helmets.
