    Default French M26 Luftschutz Helmet - Capture/Reissue Piece

    Here is a French M26 that appears to have seen some action before it was captured, repainted and reissued to Luftschutz personnel. I bought this one locally, from, I believe, the son of the vet. Personally, I like the capture/reissue pieces, even though they are not high on the list of most collectors. Hope you like it. Cheers, Jim G.

    Hard to find in France, they used them in other countries.

    Yes, I have a Czech Luftschutz, and both a captured Ssh 36 and a captured Ssh 39 both also reissued to the Luftschutz.

    Would you mind posting them, I think it would make a great thread, I also have a Czech re-issue. The M26 is a really nice. There is a Dutch re-issue for sale although I would have expected the badge to be removed.

    Here is the SSh 36, denazified and sans liner, but it will do, and a Czech CZ32 that I forgot I had, reissued to a Police unit. I don't have pictures of the SSh 39 Luftschutz reissue or the Czech cz32 Luftschutz reissue readily at hand. If I have some time later this week I will pull them out of storage and post a few shots. Cheers, Jim G.
