    I emailed Troy at USMF this morning to have him post the pictures for me. I have not heard from him. I have trouble resizing pictures to post on that forum. If any one here can help that would be great. Marty
    To make them smaller? If so there are a host of freeware programs that can do that. I like "Fast Image Resizer". It so simple to use. Just drag and drop one or more photos into the box and you are done. No built in bugs, spyware, etc.

    Hey Marty I was doing some searching around the web and came across this on the USMF might get told off for putting this link up so sorry if I have breached any rules Markings on M1 USMC Pot - STEEL AND KEVLAR HELMETS - U.S. Militaria Forum There appears to be a debate here about yellow painted numbering on M1 helmets being USMC for landing crews assigned to landing craft. I suppose this raises more questions than answers them good luck researching this one

    Ian, I never thought about a possible Marine connection, that throws a new twist on the helmet. I thank you for the extra effort trying to help me.

    Another Not Navy thought is that he would be Ensign Wilson and not LT. Wilson.
    Marty is that a duffle bag with his name and home town on it?
