Restoring objects is what I was trained for, most important is that the item should be brought back in his original condition (as it was before the restoration).

That is cool. Did the individual soldiers keep their helmets and have the plate put on after the war was over?
Thanks.
Yes they did.
Not all of course, but it was quite common.
They probably had to buy the plate, and not everyone was able to have their name stamped or engraved on it.
