Austro-Hungarian M17 with iron cross carved to the front during ww1. Issued to Finnish troops in 1939-1944.
LIFE'S LOSERS NEVER LEARN FROM THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS.
SSh-39 from the Winter and the Great Patriotic War. Research showed that these helmets we're originally worn during the Winter War and the Soviet troops removed the liners, so that they could wear something warm underneath the helmets. After that they we're repaired in the Leningrad blockade, hence the name "blockade helmet", this can be identified by the liner style and rivets that are more punched in. Then they we're reissued to soldiers fighting in the besieged Leningrad. The helmet has a name written inside the dome, but sadly it's unreadable.
Sorry about the rushed photos. I will take photos outside later.
Wiki! My god man. That's something special. Any chance of a shot of the inside, a Luftwaffe originally?
Anders your contribution is also excellent. Really superb lids guys.
Edit: Thanks for adding the interior shot Wiki.
