    Default Luftwaffe M.40 Q66 31166

    This is a lovely simple basic helmet with a camo wire on it. I got this one for 30. The owner came into our family shop and purchased a pair of trousers, and as I do when talking to locals I always ask if they have anything from the Occupation of the Island of Jersey. The chap said he had a helmet in his shed and I made an appointment for the following morning to go and have a look at it before work. I stopped off the following morning as he only lived a mile or so from my house and he handed me the helmet and said if i wanted it I could have it for the price of the trousers he had bought from me the day before. I'd have beated Billy the kid at the speed the money came out of my pocket for that one. I must add that this was some years ago, and the old chap is long since gone. He knew it was worth more but knew I was a collector and I guess liked the idea of me having it.

    Another great story and helmet D.

    I was thinking of putting some flyers out around the island when I come over but I guess you have already done that so many times ! haha

    Yes, I must have asked nearly everyone here a dozen times if they have anything from the Occupation. It certainly has dried up in the last few years.
