    Toronto Militaria Show April 2, 2022

    Looking at the Canadian Universal Pattern helmet (the white sun helmet) I'd need to see the inside. I'm thinking that one is an early badge on a reproduction helmet sadly aged up. I've seen such helmets at nearly every Toronto Show. Someone has rare badges and dresses up a latter helmet. The...

    Toronto Militaria Show April 2, 2022

    Brian, you're killing me with these photos. We had seriously considered making the trip from Michigan, but decided that we'd wait until the next one. We weren't sure if the show would have been any good and didn't want to deal with crossing the border. Now from the photos it would have been...

    Our Fearless Leader is injured

    8 hours? Gus, something is wrong... riders in the Tour de France are on their bikes for eight hours only in the longest stages. As a serious cyclist I can't imagine riding eight hours daily - stationary bike or not. Brian-- make sure you don't have a PT like the one Gus had!

    Help needed to ID Adrian Helmet

    It may have been refurbished for use in the Spanish Civil War. I've certainly seen some French M15 "Adrian" helmets that were repainted mustard brown for use by the Republican forces.
