Why a WW1 helmet ?
It's a classical pre WW2 LW motorcycle leather protection helmet .

Hello.

This one is most than probably a WW2 helmet but a similar helmet was used at the end of the first war by the german tank crews. I know somebody who have such one dated from 1918, there is a period photograph showing a tank crew with a soldier wearing this helmet (there are rights on the picture so I can not post it but you can find it if you make a search on the web) and here is mine:



Best regards
