    Most of it was done when the Allies moved through North west europe and vast numbers of Germans were surrendering , the photo in question is on the forum somewhere and as far as i can recall was in Holland or Belgium.
    Were they not WWI lids he was perforating with a pickaxe in that photo............?

    There are some nice relic helmets out there, but don't pay a fortune
    for a rusty shell. $50 to $150 should get you a wonderful

    that he has dug up himself............!

    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
