    I like it

    Many years ago I used to have a US WW1 helmet, the condition was amazing for something so old. No unit insignia on it thought.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Gary, I sold it along with all my WW2 US collection back in 1989. I had a lot of stuff. Lots of mint WW1 dated webbing etc. Divorce....

    I also had a US M1917A1 (WW1 style shell but with a new liner and M1 helmet style web chinstrap) but what I could never understand was that this new improved liner system was much more uncomfortable to wear?

    Cheers, Ade.

    I kept the German stuff

    I will try and see if I still have some old photos of my stuff. I wonder where it all is now?

    Cheers, Ade.
