Here is my Luftwaffe helmet that was brought home by my great Uncle who was a medic in 121st inf reg of the 8th ID during wwii. His name is written on helmet skirt. The helmet was in much better condition when I was a child; its liner was more supple, the string was there and there was no surface rust. I recall playing army with it. Then it got lost in time and I thought for sure gone forever. i found it in the garage and its storage was not kind. Insides got wetted - cat pee? Not sure why but glad I rediscovered and saved it.
