Lol I did a search looked through my books and found nothing , what I am trying to see if there are cases where they use a normal PH spike rather than the cavalry variety , I see a lot posted on the net have a standard PH spike , is because cavalry removable spikes are impossible to find and so missing ones have been replaced with easier to get standard PH spikes , or did it actually happen during the war .

Robb,

I think the M15 helmets, either Jäger zu Pferde or Kuerassier were manufactured too late to see much field use. Most of the ones I see are dated 1916, the year the Stahlhelm appeared. I believe the ones in this county came back either as captured war booty (and given out during bond drives) or were pilfered out of warehouses during the occupation. If you have seen the piles of helmets photos of the bond drive s, you will see some of these types of helmets. There was a lot of mix and matching going on when these crates were opened. Loose parts were put back anywhere they would fit. There were a lot more normal spikes in those boxes than here were the special height Kuerassier type. Draw your own conclusions. Those period photos may give you some clues. I think this question falls into the same category as the one regarding the proper size of cockades for these helmets.

Check German ebay using Kavallerie as a search word. A JzP trooper with helmet just ended yesterday.
