    No these were found by Evgenij a well known digger in the Kurland.I believe this type of damaged is caused by explosion or sharpnel from mortars. The bullets do a different type of damage usually round holes...

    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

    Hi luis,
    the third pic down is the most interesting to me, I collect battlefield relic helmets also. I have a helmet very near yours,
    i think if you look you will see that the pattern of the hits are from an m.g, as they are very close together, one has come out sideways. but they have been fired from below the other side lower than the ear. I have a H/J helmet that has M.G, fire with five shots through the rear skirt, from the front. great helmets i think
    thanks for showing them.
