    Hi Brian, Thanks for the information and pictures. I will have to raid my wife's treadle sewing machines to see if any of the old spools of thread are still there. John

    CRUSHED !!!

    Hi Brian, Which size thread do you use for sewing in liners, and which size tread do you use for reattaching the visors? I would think that they are different. Thanks, John

    M18 Ear Cut Out

    Pictures are back and it would seem that the original owner of the helmet had a very bad day! Thank you for posting these picture. They provide a reminder of the deadly seriousness of war, especially the first industrial war most often referred to as ”The Great War” or “World War One.”

    Found while packing up at my last show!

    Hi Steve, I am glad you asked. The unit marking on the right side of the rear visor has a strike-through and is not very legible. However, here it is; someone more knowledgeable might be able to read it. The left side almost completely unreadable. John

    Found while packing up at my last show!

    I found this little beauty while packing up at the end of my first show, Saturday 3 April, since SOS 2020.
