Nice helmets. The one with holes. Target practice or KIA.
Thanks for your thought's Steve hope your well sir ,the guts of the helmet including the chinstrap have been ripped out completely ,my hunch too would be leaning towards target practice ,well i hope so anyway ,the hole's have rusted out deep into the metal work
I remember a member from the Yugoslavia / Serbia says these helmets were so common that they are often used for target practice over there
they probably have big scrap piles of these old rust buckets over there
Thanks BG ,was the member SRB by chance ,i think he was from the former yugoslavia, if so a shame as i notice he has recently been banned ,his input will be missed on the world steel helmet's section im sure
Thanks Battlegear ,i have heard these helmet's are now restricted to international trade ,the bottom left m59/85 with the woodland type 2 pattern cover was supposedly a type used by the Arkan tiger's paramilitary group
the one in your photo from Arkan Tiger paramilitary group is a good find, you dont see many of those around.
Thank's BG ,glad you have an example in your collection please post here if you like as id like to see it the arkan tiger helmet might be too controversial to discuss so im always slightly reluctant to mention having one among my collection
I like the ego shooter pic. Nice idea, James.
