    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I love these helmets. I think they are very under appreciated. Simplistic but iconic, like the M42 of WWII Germany.

    good looking brodie, I recall my grandfather (CEF artillery gunner) telling me that the dents were often caused by soldiers using the helmet as a hammer for tent pegs. His brodie was very similar to yours, dents and all.
