James, You have great helmets.
James...great stahlhelm ! notice the "German" style liner within the liner !
Prost ! Steve.
"The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)
very nice once again james,cheers dave.
cheers nuno and MM i agree steve i can see the similarity between liners of this helmet and my bundeswehr m60 i wonder if the Hans Römer Co played a part in this design and also i notice the chinstrap and catches look very similar the plot thickens ,thanks james
The chinstrap on the shell looks exactly similar to the chinstrap on my Swedish un-issued M/37-65 helmet.
looks like the liner is missing the wide web suspension straps that go under the leather?
Very nice example of the Pea Pattern cover James,look's great.
Some information you might find useful which I found on the web "In 1995 the Heeresbekleidungsanstalt (HBA) officially released a document with sewing instructions, allowing the use of old surplus tent parts (Zeltbahn) and other discarded camouflage material as material for helmet covers."
