Default #234A M40 SD Army Full Wire Combat Helmet

As noted in the liner, this helmet was taken on June 12, 1944 in Rome, 8 days after Rome was the first capital to be liberated from Nazi German occupation on 4 June 1944.


Rome had been declared an open city which meant that it could be captured without any fighting. This was a welcome relief after the heavy fought campaign of Cassino.
