    Default M42 Luftwaffe Mail Home Helmet, ET64

    Found this at one of the local antique shops I frequent. It's a little worse for wear with half torn liner, missing one pin and the tip of the strap is gone but mail homes are tough to come by so I had to have it. No collection is complete without a mail home lid. Hope you all like it.

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

    Really really nice. Now, to research the soldier and you have the whole story and a preserved piece of history!

    Nice mate, cool to see it with the label. I see lots of WW1 lids with them but not so many WW2.

    Looks like he was Mark A. Rooney, born March 2nd, 1921, and died on May 22nd, 1998 in Fulton Co., Georgia.

    P.S. Send me your address so I can get you the 1,000 post helmet.

    Thank you. Damn Mo, you're quick! Btw, is your inbox a little less full so I can send you my address, or did I already send it to you? The days are running together.

    Hi Todd, that's a nice helmet, especially still having it's mail back "tag" still attached. I have never seen a mail back helmet from our British forces. I don't know if us brit's even did it to be honest. Maybe as we were so close to home our boys just brought them back themselves when on leave? Leon.
