    Default M40 Luftwaffe FFI Black Helmet

    Another gem I just picked up, and I thought I'd share it with you.

    Free French Liberation Army "borrowed" from the Germans, painted black, and then painted with the FFI symbol, and French Flag. Interestingly the helmet has been painted black all inside the helmet. It looks as though it was done pretty carefully without removing the rivets. ET 64 Lot Nr 5185

    The trace of the Luftwaffe decal underneath the paint can just be seen. which i feel adds to it's character

    This helmet has literally just been discovered in an attic in Northern France. It has not been on the collectors market yet.

    Something that you don't get to see that often. Although not strictly TR I thought it deserved a place here

    Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination. This is the war of the future.
