    Hello from Brugge (Bruges) Belgium.

    Hello Marty, Re 23 April 1918 the memorial to the Royal Marines is superb giving a full account of the raid and those involved. The nearby church had some really interesting memorials to both German & British servicemen. The Lock gates and canal were of interest to me from Zeebrugge to Bruges...

    Re visor lining, all I can think of is that as this was a private purchase item for officers perhaps the cost would come into it. My only regret at the time was not enquiring if he (the dealer) had the spike. We learn by experience.

    A purchase pre internet

    When I purchased this helmet I had a couple of Pickelhaubes nothing to special and then I came across this, back in the 1980's there were not so many detailed books on the subject and I certainly didn't have a computer (or a wife & children!!!). The helmet is stamped inside C F Junker 1913...
