Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 225

Post by Spiker » Fri Sep 02, 2016 9:09 am

RIR 225 / 12 kompanie
3 tone (autumn)camo helmet with pickelhaube strap. (those brass lugs and buckles would soon be replaced by cheap metal)
Couldn’t resist this one , especially because this regiment remained in the Flanders region from April 1917 until the end of the war.

Great helmet and great photos
Thanks for posting
It is a real nice one
There is just something about the German steel
combat helmet , both WW I and WW II
That is what I started collecting before spiked helmets
