    I haven't posted the WWII ones yet.........

    The US M1 helmet was the first 'lid' that I 'fell in love with'.
    It is an iconic piece of headgear - and like the Coca Cola
    bottle or the WWII Willys MB Jeep, they are instantly
    recognisable.........!

    ( Love all German helms for the same reason.........! )
    Regards,


    Steve.

    much the same for me to walkwolf. the m1 helmet what i like about them as well is the fact that this helmet still evolved well after ww2 to the 80s, but keeping its shape in some way.

    WWII Westinghouse Airborne liner with Korean War repaint and decals. Couldn't find it in my heart to put a shell over this and cover the decals.

    This was a direct vet acquired set (Brigadier General). Cover is 74 dated as is the liner. Shell is RS/SB. The other liner was his during and after Korea. Couldn't find a maker on this one.
