    Default Army helmet and pistol belonging to the same soldier.

    I was lucky enough to pick up this named ex double decal army helmet named to Diener Schwab and his P.38 in its holster. The items had been left with a local family by Schwab on Liberation day 9th May 1945 here in Jersey. The family had befriended him as he was stationed close to the farm they owned. He came to the house for the final time on Liberation day and left the helmet and pistol saying he no longer had a use for them. Luckily for me they knew of my collection and I managed to acquire the items.
