Great helmets !
Thx., for sharin´!
Wish, I´d own one of these !
"odd", (polish ?), cord cutter knife !
images of the romanian Para´s cord cutter knife.
I seem to remember some of the troops involved in the Ceaușescu execution were wearing these lids!..
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
....there's footage of both patterns (para) being worn then....I just wish I could find the link!!!!
So the infantry m73 is easy to date as the stamping is on the exterior rear edge and shows 1984 year of manufacture and also what must be a batch code ? maybe ,but how to tell on the para ,all this info has been trimmed away Hmm Does anybody know where to look ,perhaps its more liner based now to give clue's
Another nice acquisition. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, that is a very nice collection of late 20th century militaria that you are gathering. One day that will be quite an important reference source. keep up the good work.
