    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    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

    Thats exactly what i thought! Ive been after one for a while to display with some of my german helmets, and this one will fit in nicely as its not a repro that looks to new or too "relicy". I doubt i'll ever be able to afford a real one so im quite happy.

    Flea bay cant be written of completely though, in the last year myself and James have picked up a pickelhaube (which needs restoring i will admit) for 8. And a WW2 British para helmet which came about from buying something from it.

    We could do with a close up shot of the inner rim!...
