You certainly have Nick, i take it your proffesion is a reenector, i trust its well paid and your at management level
You could be sure. You have now a very good,original Captain Helmet . At the Time,when I sold it at a website, the only thing was that i needed money at this time. You could really belive that i never ever will sell any stuff from the Farm roof,that belongs to my life and Familys life. I hope that it is now clear that the Helmet is 100% WW2 . Greetings
Hmmmmm, 1944, war ended in 1945, so a group of soldiers , still fighting a war, left their equipment and in one particular case a "Captain" decides to leave his vital head protection, up in a roof and then continues the war without one, that makes a great deal of sense, i wonder just how many wartime soldiers, still in the thick of fighting leave their helmets and carry on regardless, in fact how many troops in Afghanistan, Iraq and other conflicts before this just leave their helmets and walk away to another battle, especially a gun battery, am i being too critical here, or just sarcastic, answers on a postcard please
Very funny story 155mmhowitzer... Even a 10 year old child can make up a better story...
The leather chin strap looks not good for me. It's too "new" for a helmet which lay over 30 years in a barn? And 300 bucks for a helmet without web chin straps?(only if the story were proved)
Hi Guys, first off, the new member here is NOT a previously banned member. So no insults or paranoia needed thanks.
The helmet is clearly original. But as can be seen the liner and leather chinstrap have been partially cleaned.
I have no idea on values.
The story, who knows, but kit did/does get left behind.
