    Interesting fire service reissue. The lugs have had the longer piece knocked off prior to the black repaint also. Unusual is the Soviet liner system, but why not I suppose.... it certainly looks to have been in there a long long time. The outside has been cleaned?

    Post war use possibly, might be the explanation for the liner system. Or maybe they found the liner system drug the war. An interesting combo nonetheless.

    This helmet looks to be a captured helmet and reussed by the Russian.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
