Will share a friends goodies!

He has collected over 50 years and not on computer!

Never saw him sell or set up!

But a few yrs ago he allowed me to get pics for you collectors!

I alwaysloved to roam those big hideaway collections!

Here are some helmets!

What I know is Medic helmets are rare and faked!

But when I took the pics yrs ago the real ones were still around and I believe a few have a real good chance of being good!

Just going to share them as I had taken 500 pics of US and german stuff!

I know Jerry has talked about them before! I only saw one before that Gil of ASMIC had yrs ago!

So lets look at these and maybe you have something to share!

As we get close to June 6,my thoughts always go to the boys
lost in the sand and water of that horrible day!

I myself don't really care about the german end on that day!

helmets for some reason make me flash back!

When I was a kid my dad went to the beer joint and next door was army navy store and tables of these treasures!

Helmets,web belts and who can forget that water canteen we all drank from! shocked

Enjoy looking and think about those boys!

Hi Paul, I think that I have some old pictures of a real D bail M1 para helmet, I think that I would need the permission of the new owner, a forum member in order to post. I visited Normandy 3 years ago...I only visited Omaha beach, My wife, son and I toured the Omaha cemetery, we walked the entire Omaha beach...my son and I toured and explored every nook and cranny, the old 8th air force landing field to evacuate wounded...German pillboxes overlooking the beach and Dog Green...AND we spent the night on the beach in a cottage run by a very nice man and his wife and two beautiful blonde, blue eyed 20 year old daughters....It was a very humbling experience and almost surreal in ways...It was my second trip to Paris and I always wanted to spend a few in Normandy...I had decided not to go...my wife of all people talked me into it last minute..everyone should do it...My son and I talk of it to this day..we plan a return to visit Utah and Juno next year I will post some pics tonight in honor of today regards, Ryan
