    Hi Guys

    Sorry for the poor quality of the photos - but they were taken at a museum.

    I was visiting the defense Museum in Bornholm, where they had this helmet displayed.

    Where the Windhunde stationed in Bornholm at the end of the war ? and isn´t the helmet a civilian helmet?

    Kind regards

    Hi, well it is a beaded M40 which means that it is of a poorer quality ballistic resistant helmet. Not one that is for issue to front line troops. As for the rest, I have no idea. Leon.

    The 16th Inf. Div or the 116th Pnz. Div were nowhere near there when the war ended.

    It reminds me of factory helmets rather than military, so probably nothing to do with the Heer unit and just a similar design for the logo.

    Factory workers helmets are quite often numbered, or at least I think that was the case in the UK because they were stored all in one place and to make sure they fitted the owners head.

    Interesting helmet, in any case! Although it's similar, I don't believe that it's meant to be a "Windhund",though. I've never seen one made with all 4 legs showing. It almost looks more like a running or pouncing Cat than a dog...the Windhund was always portrayed as jumping Over fortifications.

    Agreed, factory police helmets often have "rack numbers" stenciled somewhere on the helmet. Jim G.
