I was at OVMS show last weekend and guy brought this helmet in
he got from his uncle!

As he took it out of the brown bag,he said his uncle got it
from Japanese navy base after war!

He was on LST during war and thats what was told!

I posted on WAF and have had outstanding discussion on this seldom seen helmet!

This baby is so heavy and collectors speculate on its use!

Have had over 789 looks and thought it should also be post on this forum!

Many really serious collectors including Jareth are involved in discussion!
