    Default 1st Lt. Officers helmet with "follow me" stripe.

    Hello,

    My other big SOS purchase was this nice officers helmet with the "follow me" stripe painted on the rear of the shell and liner. I have been on the lookout for a nice one of these, and got this one this weekend at the show. Other than the paint, its not to flashy, standard Westinghouse liner, typical features. Although the offset Lt. bar does bug my perfectionist side, I do find it adds its own character to the helmet.

    ***THE HELP PART*** It came from a grouping someone split up, of a footlocker, and some other gear I would love to recover, if anyone can help! The owner was named Edward Skinner, and some collector(I assume) out there has the rest of the stuff, possibly in the Houston area. If anyone tracks it down I would be more than happy to have it all back together!

    Hope you enjoy the pictures!

    As always,

    Nathan

    But would the Lt bar still be offset if he was promoted?
    Nice find!

    That is correct, maybe he was looking for that second bar! Thanks Oz!
