    Tom it's good to see you back here mate , get fit and well again soon

    Kevin it's a nice lid , many of the large German factories had their own defence force/ fire service etc never seen a Mauser one before so it makes it a very interesting lid

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Hi Guys, I should caution that fake factory decals are now being made and being applied to overwise original plain black civic helmets.

    I cannot comment on the originality of the one shown.

    Cheers, Ade.
