    Default Luftwaffe M35 Q66 double decal helmet with some history

    This helmet was a souvineer picked up by a US GI in March of 1945, and I would guess by the date, that he picked it up in Germany somewhere.

    I would love to know his unit, this would give an idea of where he served at the time, but thanks to his inscriptions inside the rim of the helmet,
    I do have his name and particulars, which I think really adds to the history of the helmet. The GI's name and details that I have so far are:-

    Hi Bob, that's a lovely clean example of a Luftwaffe M35, great inscription too that really adds to this piece giving it a history so often long lost. Leon.
