Article about: Hey friends, sorry to start this discussion, I just never seen or heard about beaded helmets before (Im a newbie), so I didnt really pay attention, but now that I know there is no doubt that
I've recently bought this helmet. The linersystem is obviously not original to the helmet, however Im unsure if it was altered during or after the war? Im also unsure about the colour and painting, so comment and opinions are appreciated!
Extra info: I bought it (together with a luftschutz helmet) from a guy who worked more than 30 years at Aalborg airport (Denmark).
He claims that it belonged to luftwaffe, and that the germans left hundreds of helmets like these when the war ended. After the war they weren't used by the danish, but just stored in boxes. Don't know if its true though.
