An Oldie but Goodie

Post by JzPf » Tue Apr 16, 2019 8:04 pm

Here's the first spiked helmet I ever held, it actually belongs to my brother-in-law, but we've been taking care of it since 1977. An OR helmet to Garde Grenadier Regt #5 and stamped BAG 1907. This helmet was brought back from Europe by my brother-in-laws father who served with the Army's 4th Engineer Battalion. He participated in the Aisne-Marne and Meuse-Argonne Offensive if memory serves. He also served during WW II. Still in nice shape.

Cheers,
Dennis
