    Default WWII Named USN Fixed Loop - Wallace Schur

    Here is a fixed loop USN helmet named to Wallace Schur a WWII USN vet.
    He clearly did not want anyone else taking his helmet because the helmet and liner are named all over.
    Schur was from PA and is currently burred there.
    It was apparantly re-issued to him from a soldier or sailor with the initials J.E.D.
    J.E.D. is marked on the helmet chinstrap and on the liner nape.
    Both are then crossed out.
    Helmet is a McCord number 624A and liner is a Westy.

    Thank you Patches.
    I have been limiting my purchases to matched sets (helmet and liner).
    Unless the helmet is special for some other reason.

    Default Hi

    Wow! I'm in awe. Wallace Schur was my grandfather. He passed away long before I was born. I was very close with my grandmother Helen. I still live in PA and my mother (Wally's daughter) still lives in Hokey. Do you still have these possessions? Are you looking to sell?

    It would be best to send the original poster a PM. Click on his name and a box will open giving you the option to send a private message
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
