    It has been interesting reading previous posts on wired helmets where the comments have ranged from "all European wire has LH twists, only western wire has RH twists" to "the twist starts left then reverses" to this agreed gennie one that has a row of RH, then a row of LH, then back again.

    Just goes to show the chickens never cared which way it went, only us loony collectors!!
