    Default Named Fixed Loop Major's Helmet with Hawley Liner

    I picked this one up on ebay.
    The Hawley is not a mint condition helmet but I like it just the same.
    It is clearly a matched set.
    I am sure a few of you saw it.
    I think the stamp says:

    Major Walter S. Jones F.A.

    Hq. Wisconsin Military A__

    559 Federal Building

    Milwaukee Wisconsin

    We also found this article from the Ironwood Daily Globe from Ironwood, Michigan
    August 1, 1945 on NEWSPAPER.com

    Major Walter Jones, executive officer at the Chicago induction center for the past two years, arrived last night to take command of the Milwaukee induction station. He succeeded Major Edward R. Wagnwr, who died Friday at the station

    Hopefully I can find more info on him.

    Oh, I forgot to post that I identified the Major.

    "Major Walter Jones, executive officer at the Chicago induction center for the past two years, arrived last night to take command of the Milwaukee induction station. He succeeded Major Edward R. Wagner, who died Friday at the station."
