ARGYLL & SUTHERLAND HLDRS. OFFICERS SUN HELMET Super example of an 1899 pattern Wolseley helmet attributed to an officer in the Argylls. This came with other uniform items straight from the family home. The other items date to the Boer War and are available in my other listings. The helmet could possibly be 1920's /1930's as it has foil inside which was more common on later helmets . Condition is very good for it's age with only some splits to the leather trim out the leading edge. , 8 fold puggaree is good and most of the foil lining is present. Makers details to the leather and red silk sweatband is present but indistinct. Leather chin strap complete but dry. Very nice Bronze officers collar mounted on black cotton with Regimental yellow felt trim to left side. Collar is the "Tail Up" type used during the Victorian period. Superb piece and extremely rare to find something to the Argylls from this period . Great look.

Used in conjunction with the ships guns for targeting aircraft and surface targets. All control knobs , handles etc. original and in good working order. Clear lenses.

There are many collectors of Robb items because of their high quality. They were granted a Royal Warrant in the late 19th century. Good scabbard leather. Blade has a camel motif which was used by Inverness silversmiths so has possibly come from one of them, Ferguson & Mc Bean ? Attributed to the Atholl Highlanders this is an outstanding top end piece, unfortunately with price to match but I suppose as a decent vintage Infantry of the Line example now costing £600/£700, it's a great investment.

1920\'S / 30\'S ANTI SEMITIC BEER STEIN A very rare German beer stein with strong anti semitic connotations mirroring the view that helped Hitler come to power. This is being sold as a historically important piece and in no way mirrors our beliefs and for the record, the last one I had went to Israel to a big collection there. Approx. size 20.5 cm/8 inches from top to bottom of the stein. 11.2 cm diameter at the bottom. This stein is 100% \" One Look \"original . The scenes on the stein show pretty very much every negative quality of the Jews, including the saying \"Trau keinem Fuchs...\" (Trust No Fox...). Some of the scenes depict the following: A German farmer together with three Jews holding documents, as they cheat him out of his land with the saying \"Kauft nicht bei Juden\" (Don\'t buy from Jews). A Jew presenting an invoice to a laborer, together with a saying that translates to something like, \"The handicraft brings only a small salary while the Jew Cohn cashes in the big profit\" A sleeping Aryan (Michel) is laying under a tree while two Jews are robbing him while he sleeps. Another scene is calling to drive the Jews out of Germany to Israel with \"Michel\" the Aryan showing the Jews the way out of Germany while swinging a club. \"Deutsches Haus / Juden haben keinen Zutritt\" (German House / No Access For Jews) is written under another scene where the Jews are being forced to leave The retailer of the stein is Joh. Korzilius, a company that is still in business today.The manufacturer was Deumler & Beiden. There are two dates on the stein, 1893 and 1910. 1893 being the year in which the anti-Semitic party had a huge success in the Reichstag election and 1910 was the year in which the \"Deutschvoel-kischer Studentenverband\" was founded, a very antisemitic right wing party. One of the founders, Wilhelm Kube, was later leader of the Prussian wing of the NSDAP and during the war was in charge of the \"Jewish Question\" in Weissruthien (Russia). Similar steins were auctioned off at Christie\'s in New York, Christe\'s in Amsterdam, Habsburg Feldman in Geneva and Sotheby\'s in Tel Aviv between 1988 and 2001 for several thousand dollars each. Condition is excellent with no chips, damage or repairs. It comes with a lifelong guarantee of authenticity.

TOD, Ronald John Frederick (Brig) Known as: Ronnie Rank: Brigadier Unit/Base: 6 Independent Company 11 Independent Company 9 Commando Regiment/Corps: Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Service number: 32187 Honours & Awards: Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) Distinguished Service Order Bar to the Distinguished Service Order Born: Friday, November 3, 1905 Died : Saturday, April 5, 1975 Operations: Operation Collar Operation Ambassador Operation Roast Commissioned into the Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders in 1925. Served in No 6 Independent Company and was Officer Commanding No 11 Independent Company in 1940 and later took command of No 9 Commando in 1942. Awarded DSO, and later a Bar to the DSO, each for "gallant and distinguished services in Italy " whilst commanding No 9 Commando in 1944. Promoted Brigadier and Officer Commanding 2 Commando Brigade, in 1945 he was awarded a CBE for "gallant and distinguished services in Italy." Commando Association Newsletter 61 of 1975. "We are saddened by the death on 5th April last of Brigadier Ronald John Froderick Tod CBE, DSO & Bar, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, a Vice President of the Association and one of the first Commanding Officers of the Independent Companies from which Army Commandos were developed. Lt.Colonel Michael Allen (9 Commando) writes: Ronnie Tod, as he was universally and affectionately known, rose spontaneously during the Second World War to the occasion for which he had been trained as a regular soldier, and throughout his wartime commands of No. 6 Independent Company, No. 9 Commando and ultimately 2nd Commando Brigade, he operated as a talented, intrepid, and adventurous professional. He instinctively recognised the right job to be done, acknowledged the supreme significance of the men with whom he had to see to the doing of it, and then commanded, cared for, and directed them accordingly. Those men remained under his command with unswerving resolution and loyalty for so long as they were fit and able. Ronnie Tod was daunted by nothing except concern for his men, and at all times was inspired by an implacable determination that together they would achieve the object of whatever task or exercise was set them. He will happily have joined those whose names are inscribed in the Cornmando Roll of Honour Book which rests in St. George's Chapel, Westminster Abbey and we recall that the final completion of this Book of Remembrance was only made possible by his generosity. We have lost another comrade without the like of whom the Army Commandos would never have gained their place in the history of the British Army". Early life and career Tod was born on 3 November 1905.[1] On graduation from Royal Military College, Sandhurst he was commissioned into the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders as a second lieutenant on 29 January 1925.[2] On 14 December 1932 (now a lieutenant) he was seconded for service with the Colonial Office,[3] joining 4th Battalion, Nigeria Regiment, Royal West African Frontier Force.[1] He was promoted captain on 6 June 1935,[4] and took command of one of the battalion's companies.[1] His secondment ended on 1 August 1938,[5] and he returned to the UK, taking up regimental duties with 1st Battalion, Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders in early 1939.[1] Second World War[edit] In March 1940, following the outbreak of the Second World War, Tod volunteered to join the Independent Companies being raised for the Norwegian Campaign. He was promoted to acting major on 2 April and became Officer Commanding No. 6 Independent Company on 25 April.[1] He held that post until June when he was tasked with raising No. 11 Independent Company.[nb 1] As commander of this company, he led them on two "commando" raids shortly afterwards, one to Boulogne in France known as Operation Collar, and Operation Ambassador, which was a raid on the German occupied Guernsey.[6][7] These were the first two such raids carried out by British commandos during the war.[8] Just before the second of these raids he was confirmed as a temporary major on 2 July 1940.[1] Later, on 20 January 1942 Tod was promoted to acting lieutenant colonel,[1] his majority was made substantive on 29 January,[9] and his acting rank was made temporary on 20 April.[1] Later in the year he took command of No. 9 Commando.[1][10] In late 1943 No. 9 Commando was detailed to take part in the Italian Campaign. Tod was later commended for his leadership during a raid across the river Garigliano on 29/30 December 1943 and during Operation Shingle, the Allied amphibious attack on Anzio on 22 January 1944. In the follow-up to the landings, the commando was ordered to take two hills to the north of Monte Ornito on the night of 23/24 February 1944.[11] For his leadership during the attack, Tod was awarded the Distinguished Service Order on 29 June 1944.[12] The recommendation for the award describes the events of the night. The commando left its start lines at 19:30, and at about 21:30 came under heavy mortar and machine gun fire. Tod undertook a personal reconnaissance, and the ensuing attack captured a German pill box and 23 men. The commando resumed its journey towards its objective, but immediately came under heavy artillery and mortar fire which continued to build in intensity as they approached the main objective, "Point 803". As Tod gave orders for the main attack to begin, four out of five troop leaders, the intelligence officer, and the regimental sergeant major were all killed or wounded by the shelling. Tod retained control, ordering the leading troop to make the attack, supported by two other troops, while the remaining two troops were to take up covering positions to the south, where they would hopefully be out of the majority of the shelling. At this point, Tod himself was wounded in both arms and both legs, but still managed to order his adjutant forward to take command of the attack. Tod then lost consciousness for about ten minutes, but after coming round, began to oversee the evacuation of the wounded. The troops detailed to attack the objective managed to attain it, but were taking heavy casualties, so Tod ordered a retreat to defensive positions on the southern slope of Mount Ornito. Tod was among the last group to fall back, and had to be supported by the adjutant as they made their way back. He remained in command until 10:30 the following morning when his brigade commander ordered him to seek medical attention. According to the recommendation he "undoubtedly saved a critical situation and had a very steadying influence on his unit".[11] Another officer, George Davy, later described how that morning Tod was far more concerned about the injuries to his RSM than he was by his own wounds.[13] Just under a month later, on 19 March 1944, the commando was ordered to carry out a diversionary attack on a dry valley in the Campo di Carne area, and for his leadership on this occasion Tod was awarded a Bar to his DSO on 20 July 1944.[14][15] Again the recommendation for the award describes events. The commando's attack began at 02:00, they entered the valley and began to clear it, but it soon became apparent that the defending force was considerably larger than anticipated. Later intelligence showed that they had been facing a whole German battalion. Realising that further progress along the valley would be impossible, Tod ordered his men to take up defensive positions. They held these until the following evening, despite being under fire from three sides, and one particularly strong counterattack by the Germans. Tod was painfully wounded in the early afternoon, but continued to lead from the front. During the German counterattack, German grenades were exploding in his command position. With nightfall, the commando withdrew, bringing in all their wounded. The recommendation especially mentions Tod's "complete disregard for his own personal safety", and his "outstanding display of coolness, courage and leadership at a time when such qualities were most urgently required."[15] Tod then served in the Greek islands with Foxforce in the summer of 1944,[16] when 9 Commando was made part of 2nd Special Service Brigade under the command of Land Forces Adriatic, led by George Davy.[13] Davy ordered the commando to Kythera, ready for a move to the Peloponnese in anticipation of the German withdrawal from Greece. Here, British forces were being sucked into the emerging Greek Civil War, and often found themselves between opposing communist and anti-communist Greek forces. They managed to defuse many of these potential conflicts, saving many lives in the process. Finally they were ordered to take two islands off Piraeus in order to provide security for Royal Navy minesweepers operating in the area in preparation for the arrival of larger British force under Ronald Scobie. Orders that they were not to enter Athens itself did not reach them, and Tod ensured that the airfield and various strategic points in Athens were under British control prior to Scobie's arrival. Tod was awarded the freedom of the city by Archbishop Damaskinos of Athens,[13] and Davy credited him as "one of the two British officers who kept Greece on the free side of the Iron Curtain".[13] Tod was then promoted to acting colonel, and appointed brigadier in command of the 2nd Special Service Brigade on 18 October 1944.[17] With them he returned to Italy to lead them in the Spring 1945 offensive and until the end of the war.[1][18] For this, and in particular the capture of Comacchio, he was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire on 20 September 1945.[19][20] Retirement[edit] On 7 August 1948 Tod retired with the rank of honorary brigadier.[1][21] He remained in the reserve of officers until 3 November 1955.[22] He died on 5 April 1975.[1] ^ No. 11 Independent Company was raised on 14 June from volunteers for commando service and members from the recently disbanded No. 9 Independent Company.

GERMAN ARMYM40 SINGLE DECAL - ET64 Good untouched, all original M40 with a nicely toned almost 100% army decal. Helmets like this rarely turn up now and this one is an American vet bring back acquired straight from the family. This is not a Kreigsmarine although I've seen toned army's sold as such to enhance the value . ET 64 shell, Lot no. 1162. Configures exactly with the Ice helmet code book which has that lot of helmets as single decal army, Zinc/ sheepskin liner , field grey drab paint so it's as it left the factory. Good percentage of original paint, liner complete but dry, one tongue end a/f. Full length original chin strap dry but good, strap fixing stud absent on the buckle side and held together by a piece of period string so likely it was being worn like this. Good One Look original.

Gilded brass fittings with especially nice helmet plate. No cockades. Nice liner with all tongue ends complete.

GERMAN HEER M42 CAMO HELMET WITH WIRE - BATTLE DAMAGED - Battle damaged M42 from the battle for France after D Day. Retains most of it's original sawdust camo overpaint and the remains of a white winter camo . Shrapnel strike to the right side just above the ear which has pierced the helmet and no doubt instantly killed the soldier. What is really cool about this one is the improvised wire arrangement for holding foliage. It's possibly the spring from a truck seat or similar, fitted through the air vents and very suitable for holding any camo materials. Definitely original to the helmet with impressions on the shell where the wire has ridden up and down. Found in France. No liner as you would expect with serious damage like this but not a relic, rather a battlefield period pick up. SE 62 shell.Batch no. 2341.
GERMAN HELMET M35 KREIGSMARINE DOUBLE DECAL APPLE GREEN Extremely rare M35 double decal Kreigsmarine helmet in early apple green smooth paint. The helmet shell is maker mkd/sized ET66 on the inside apron at wearers left. The original Apple Green paint remains approx. 97% intact. The eagle decal is a text book example of early Kreigsmarine insignia with a deep golden colour and layered construction. It rates at 97%. The split pins are all matching each other and show no signs of tampering. The early aluminium re enforced liner band is maker mkd. and dated 1938. There is an acceptance dome stamp to the inside crown of the helmet that clearly shows the date 1938. The leather of the liner shows the early tanning method and rates excellent condition wise, showing only minor wear and no damage. The chin strap is original to the helmet and is in nice pliable condition. It bears a maker mark and a faint 1939 date. Servicemans name to rear apron in white and evidence of a cloth name tag to the leather. I've encountered these named labels on helmets before. This one has been removed suggesting the helmet had a previous owner. Great looking large helmet that displays nicely and is among the rarest to find in any condition. The National colours decal was given a swipe of paint to cover it as per the ordered decal drop in 1940. At some point it's been uncovered again and a large percentage of the decal is still present. Double decal Navy's are the hardest to find of any arm of service because they were produced in far fewer numbers and this is a very low price for such a rarity, examples I've seen in the market place are £2,500 plus. 100% original. The cheapest genuine apple green double out there.
GERMAN INTER WAR - DER STALHELM BADGE Nice example. Silvered finish with black inset text and EK. Likely plated tombak. Original pin. Stamped to base \"W.D. Ges Gesch\".

GERMAN M16 DUCK BILL HELMET - BATTLE DAMAGED - BING A very rare front line helmet by the scarce maker G.B.N. ( Gebruder Bing), better known for their top end tin plate toys. This one has sustained battle damage with a shrapnel strike to the rear crown. It also looks like someone has then put 4 pistol rounds into the poor chap as there are outward dents with corresponding holes through the liner. The liner surprisingly is good with all 3 pads and leather band, one pad still with it's cushion and still with it's original draw string. This is the correct size 64, the only size produced by Bing and has the scarce " Duck Bill" front visor found on these models. The shell retains most of it's original field grey paint . The helmet is dusty and dirty, this is how it came to me and that is how all items go out. Superb all original combat vet.
GERMAN M16 MEDICS GERMAN HELMET I'll let this one speak for itself. All original inc. horsehair pads, even has an original undamaged chinstrap. Featured in WW1 German Militaria book a few years ago. Helmets like this are now virtually unobtainable.
GERMAN M35 CONDOR LEGION HELMET Rare Legion Condor German M35. Finished in a smooth brown paint to the shell with a tropical tan paint to the inside of the apron. This is very often the case with LC helmets and I have enclosed pics of other examples with this. Original Luftwaffe blue to the rest of the inside. All original with near absence of markings as is the norm with helmets made for export. Early single banded aluminium liner band. Full length chin strap with aluminium buckle. Ink soldier applied markings to the inside ( see pics ), one of which looks like Pz. Panzer ? I am including a Spanish eagle helmet badge which did not come with the helmet but is an original wartime piece. Great condition and not to be confused with the later Spanish made Elmetto. When the M1935 combat helmet went into production in 1935, units of the German Army (Heer) and Air Force (Luftwaffe) eagerly awaited the finished product. Much to their dissatisfaction, the first shipment of completed helmets did not reach their units until 1936. This delay, in part, was due to a number of large foreign orders that took precedence over the requests of the German Armed Services (Wehrmacht). It is important to note that German firms produced the M1935 helmet for foreign export prior to World War II. The largest of these shipments were sent to the Chinese and Spanish governments. While virtually identical to the German issued M1935, most of the exported helmets did not have the same type of liner systems found in Wehrmacht issued helmets. In addition, the majority of foreign export models were not stamped with production code numbers and maker's marks like those found on original wartime era German combat helmets. There was no standard colour brown used and it is possible the repaints were actually done in the field. When the German Condor Legion arrived in Spain , they had unilaterally painted their Luftwaffe-blue helmets brown.
GERMAN M35 DAK AFRIKA / EURO CAMO LUFTWAFFE HELMET - ARTILLERY UNIT MKD. Great looking combat helmet. This one the tan colour is the Afrika pinkish hue as opposed to European theatre ordnance tan so this guy has served in North Afrika before being transferred to either Italy or France. Then he has simply added some green spray on top of the DAK paint. Great " Been There " example, all original with good combat worn liner and full length maker mkd. and dtd. chin strap.It's definitely ex DAK, I know that pinkish colour so very possible as said before, this guy went to Italy/Sicily or another European theatre . Named and also mkd. up to a Flak/Artillery unit. Good size 66 Quist shell.
GERMAN M35 DOUBLE DECAL ARMY HELMET - NS 68 - COMPLETE Excellent helmet in early war smooth paint. Huge rare size 68. Very good Heer decal. State shield also good to about 85%. This interestingly has had a brush stroke of paint put across it in an effort to hide it as per the decal drop directive of 1940 when these shields were supposed to be removed. Obviously the lazy mans way as opposed to scraping it off. Original 1940 Maker mkd and dated chin strap. Double banded aluminium liner band. Batch no. B 2. Good leather liner which is approx a 57. All original helmet straight from an American vets foot locker and exactly as it came back in 1945. Brian Rices book confirms this helmet to be a double decal Heer of early 1940 manufacture and having a 1940 chin strap. Also they were a direct pre cursor to the M40 pattern B series helmets.
GERMAN M35 DOUBLE DECAL ARMY/ HEER HELMET Top shelf helmet. Rare early helmet in a large size. Early smooth paint to 95%. Excellent Wermacht Adler and State shield. Both are as nice as I've seen. The eagle decal is almost 100% and still very bright. State shield has some nice slight age crazing and is almost 100%. Large Q 66 shell with early lot no. 4500. Confirmed in the Ice book as having left the factory with this exact configuration around late 1937. Nice liner c/w original draw string. Chin strap although original to it is a later 1943 dtd. and maker mkd. example. Not unusual given this is an early helmet. The long end has a tear at the rivet otherwise very good with the steel buckle still retaining it's grey painted finish. All in all an excellent helmet of a quality not often found these days.
GERMAN M35 DOUBLE DECAL LUFTWAFFE HELMET - EARLY DROOP TAIL EAGLE Top shelf helmet. Very early SE 66 shell with lot no. 3345. Retaining almost all it's original smooth paint.

GERMAN M35 SE 68 SINGLE DECAL SAWDUST CAMO HELMET SIZE 68 Huge sawdust camo reissue which has been originally a double decal. Nice decal and most of the applied finish present apart from some loss in the crown area, finish remaining to around 90%. Still with it's scarce early issue single banded aluminium liner band, this as usual cracked hence the need for the later double banding. Nice sheepskin liner and still with the original draw string. Original to it aluminium buckle with Berlin maker and 1938 date, this in good supple condition. Cracking helmet and in the sought after very large size. SE 68 and lot no. 3607
GERMAN M35 SINGLE DECAL ARMY HELMET - M35 SNOW CAMO Great looking combat helmet.Large size 66 , possibly 68 shell. NS maker. Reissue helmet and ticks the boxes with the Ice book on helmet criteria on NS reissues. True front line vet this one and with a large percentage of part removed whitewash snow camo. Good decal. I can't make out the lot number due to paint but it looks like 2717. Correct zinc liner band with sheepskin and still with the original drawstring. The liner tongues are all good and pulled together at the top as I would guess it was too big for the soldier ? Good original to it full length steel buckle chin strap with an ink maker mark ( indistinct ). Large percentage of the drab field grey finish remaining and evidence of having had a camo underneath and as stated a fair amount of snow camo overpaint. A helmet that has seen a lot of action.
GERMAN M35 SINGLE DECAL HEER HELMET - ORIGINAL PARADE FINISH - COMPLETE Super helmet and rare to find one with the early smooth dark green paint finish. The silver army decal is in good shape and has toned to a nice golden colour.Size 57 liner with owners initials. NS 64 shell with batch no. 5864. Brian Ice's helmet book confirms this helmet configures exactly as to how it left the factory in late 1937. Both liner and chinstrap are great, the chin strap being maker mkd. and dated 1940. Original draw string. Helmets like this are scarcely encountered, never refinished in field grey or reissued. Letter of authenticity from Bill Shea included

This helmet saw more than one Theatre of Operations ! Zinc liner band with good thick sheepskin liner with all tongue ends complete and original draw string. Original strap good but with the end of the long section absent. Steel buckle. This helmet dates to 1943 and just prior to the decal drop as there is evidence of having had a single decal. Superb combat vet with a fantastic look and a heavy helmet as Quists tend to be. V.G.C.
GERMAN M40 HELMET ARMY SINGLE DECAL - ET64 Good clean helmet by Thale Iron works. Good decal. Shell retains a large percentage of it's original smooth field grey paint. Some reddish/ ochre paint around the helmet pins would indicate it possibly having had a camo applied at some point during it's working life. Great liner with just a nice amount of service wear. Original draw string present but broken. Batch no. 5491. No chin strap. Priced to sell.
GERMAN M40 HELMET ARMY SINGLE DECAL QUIST 64 - NAMED A superb all complete original combat helmet retaining almost all it's original matt field grey paint. This one is what's called a wartime re issue, i.e. updated with matt paint , re decalled in some instances and issued again. Interestingly, the decal has been applied on top of an earlier one which can just be made out on close inspection. The decal is a stunning looking army which has toned to a golden colour but in my opinion is not a Kreigsmarine. Q64 and batch no. DN 116. Good liner with 3 tongue ends slightly a/f and dark which is usually blood so this guy possibly had a head wound. Original steel buckle chin strap, good but with tip of the long section absent . Owners name " BRAUN FALKO " applied to apron. Fantastic looking helmet.
GERMAN M40 HELMET EF 66 - COMPLETE Exactly as it left the factory, verified in the Brian Rice book on German helmet codes and configurations. Field grey shell retaining most of it's paint.

Named to soldier in ink and another name is part present next to the missing tongue so it would appear to have been issued twice. Original steel buckle chin strap with field repair .

GERMAN M42 HELMET - GREEN CAMO - AMERICAN VET BRING BACK "One Look" Combat helmet . Thick, likely hand applied Grass Green camo paint over the field grey.

GERMAN M42 LUFTWAFFE SD HELMET Lovely early M42 I sold to a customer 20years ago and just got it back. All complete and with Luftwaffe brown chin strap, full length mkd. and dated. Large size 66. The liner band is from the transition period from M40 to 42 where they were still using M40 components. I've checked this out and it all tallies exactly as it should and the 1st of the M42's could have sheepskin leather as opposed to pig skin that dominated later in the war. Helmets as clean as this are now difficult to obtain and it's a very fair price.
GERMAN M42 LUFTWAFFE SD HELMET - VERY LARGE SIZE 68 - PROVENANCE Superb example which was a vet bring back from Kiel at the end of the war.

Rare size 68 retaining almost all it's finish and a good decal. Liner good. No chin strap although I have a late war RB numbered strap that would look good on this which I would offer to the buyer for an additional £150. Nice helmet, nice provenance.

GERMAN WW1/WW2 TRANSITIONAL HELMET COMPLETE I've left this one exactly as it came in, c/w with it's full length mkd. chinstrap.

Originally a blue grey this has been overpainted period in correct field grey . This with a percentage of flaking. Excellent M35 pattern, clean, size 56 liner and maker mkd. full length chinstrap.

" Transitional helmets, i.e. WW1 helmets fitted with WW2 type liners were used inter war during the Nazi period, and wartime they were used primarily by 2nd line troops. Take off the price of the chin strap and this makes it a very cheap helmet.

M40 SINGLE DECAL ARMY GERMAN HELMET - NS 64 A good 100% original combat veteran . NS 64, with Lot No. DN 67. This helmet dates to 1940 and has the hybrid characteristics as they changed from aluminium to zinc liner bands so you find helmets like this where they are using the last of the M35 liner systems in the M40 shell. Double banded aluminium liner band with square D rings and sheepskin leather. Another coat of rough paint on top of the Field Grey. This is the way I like to see them with some paint on the decal from where the owner has tried none too successfully to paint round the decal. Liner dry and hair oil darkened but still good with one tongue end a/f. Original draw string. No chin strap. Single Heer decal. One Look original

M42 GERMAN HELMET ARMY SINGLE DECAL 2 TONE CAMO - AMERICAN VET BRING BACK This one out of Michigan a few years ago and purchased direct from the vets family. Story goes it was taken from a pile of helmets from surrendering P.O.W.'s. Vet liked it because it was the only one with camo paint. He took the helmet and put it in his tank.Later the chin strap was utilised for a running repair on said tank. That aside it's a cracking helmet , much better in the flesh as it were. Green and ochre spray and the owner obviously was young with a sense of humour ( See finish in line/behind decal ). Wermacht adler decal very good. Size 57 liner with service wear round the lower leading edge. Remains of chin strap at one side. Code numbers to rear skirt, CKL 164 2510. Superb genuine " Been There " combat helmet with an unusual camo. Brian Ice helmet code book records confirm this helmet having left the factory between 1st Feb. 1943 and the 28th Aug. 1943 and corresponding exactly with the helmet particulars being a single decal Heer with sheepskin liner with zinc band .

RED ARROWS 1ST SQUADRON LEADERS FLYING HELMET - ATTRIBUTED A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO OBTAIN A GENUINE & SUPERB (RED ARROWS) Mk2 "BONE DOME". Flown during the 1970-71 display season in the Folland Gnat aircraft then used by the team. The helmet is attributed to the Late-Great Squadron Leader 'Bill Loverseed" Team Leader of The Red Arrows 1970-1971. The helmet is in well used condition with plenty of knocks and scrapes having for many years been used as an RAF recruiting 'tool' in various places and at various air shows and displays. It was finally sold off as a charitable donation many years ago. The visor screws at left end of the visor need replacing but overall the helmet is clean and complete having had the normal "interservice green" inner electrical and webbing conversion and general mod' common to 99% of all operational helmets of the period. All "white" RAF Mk2 helmets are very scarce and seldom seen for sale at all. Used also on many of the types being flown at the time such as The Lightning, Vulcan and the Phantom etc. Raymond Eric William Loverseed was born on an RAF base in Egypt in 1932. Bill joined the RAF in 1952,[17] and flew with the Red Arrows in their first year, 1965, and also in 1970.[18] He took command of the Red Arrows in 1971 after the previous leader, Dennis Hazell, broke his leg after ejecting due to an engine failure in practice in November 1970. Four Red Arrows' pilots were killed in an accident at RAF Kemble in January 1971, when two planes carrying two men each collided in mid-air. Bill Loverseed was promoted to Squadron Leader in July 1971,[19] but resigned his commission in May 1972.[17] He married four times. He flew a Buffalo transport plane that crash-landed at the Farnborough Air Show in 1984, and a Piper Cherokee aircraft that suffered severe icing and crashed in Newfoundland in 1987. He died in 1998, on a Dash 7 that he was piloting on a test flight over Devon.[20] A WONDERFUL ITEM OF GREAT HISTORICAL INTEREST ( Much sought after I will guarantee that you will not see anything like this again in a hurry !) . C/w it's carry case.

This was one of the items from that auction.It was formerly the property of CHARLES STIRLING who was the C.O.( major )in Command from 1805.

WW1 GERMAN M17 HELMET - NAMED Straight from a Scottish officers house in Dumbarton ( Brig. Alisdair Pearson, Parachute Rgt. ) and was a wartime bring back by a family member. Totally original. M16 type shell with M17 metal liner band. 3 white chromed leather pads in very good condition with 5 of the 6 tongue ends intact and and still with the horsehair cushions and original draw string.Some sweat and dirt to the liner pads, so not a helmet that sat out the war ! (In May of 1917 due to a leather shortage the liner was redesigned. The new liner continued with the earlier “three pad” system but changed from a leather band to a steel band made from sheet metal. The pads were now crimped into place on a steel band. The pads were now to be made from white chromed leather (Russian leather) instead of the brown vegetable tanned type. This change was made in the hope that the chromed leather would hold up better in the trench conditions. Steel band marked " 64 - F C B 18 - A.K.E.". Shell stamped with a " W "( Hermann Weissenberger & Co. Stuttgart-Cannstadt). This is slightly unusual in that they were thought to have only produced size 66 and 68 shells so this could turn out to be a rarity. Field grey paint. Stepped lugs. One chin strap metal end present. Soldiers name to rear skirt and 6/395 ?, possibly a Feldpost number ? If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Cracking sleeper.
WW1 GERMAN M18 HELMET - UNIT MKD - BELL L - FREIKORPS ? Very interesting M18 helmet from the Great War / Inter War period. Rare maker,known as the Bell L helmet as the factory symbol is a bell shape followed by " L " and ( size ) 64, this being the only size of shell made by this factory ( R. Lindenberg A.G., Remscheid-Hasten ). The helmet has a brownish hue from the toned lacquer it was coated with , in my opinion during the Stahlhelm / Freikorps period inter war. Post WW1 is was common to do this to give the helmet a parade type finish . Smooth paint, shiny finishes still continuing into the M35 period before the introduction of wartime matt Feld Grau. The helmet has a number " 10 " painted to the front. This could be Regiment 10 from wartime or possibly a Freikorps unit . I have forum posted the helmet for opinions on this but no one has a definitive answer although the helmet itself got the 100% thumbs up on authenticity. The shell retains most of it's original finish and has the rounded ends to the air vents correct for this maker. Stepped lugs. Metal liner band with the strap fixings correct for M18 helmets. Liner pads are the chromed leather type and in good shape with some service wear / sweat and 2 of the 6 tongue ends a/f.Leather is still supple . Draw string is original. Rare " Carbine Clip " original chin strap and although shortened and with a repair is in good condition with the leather still supple. These on their own are expensive and near impossible to find. Faint pencilled name / details to the rear skirt. Cracking non Run of the Mill helmet, all original and in great shape for it's age and remarkably, still with it's chin strap. If anyone has a take on the number to the front , please let me know.

WW1 SCOTTISH - O/R\'S HIGHLAND CUT AWAY - KHAKI TUNIC - LARGE - RARE Extremely rare Great War Scottish type o/r\'s tunic. I don\'t think this one could be bettered. Beautiful condition . Highland cut away front for wear with the kilt. Made by Moore and Taggart of Glasgow. Very good size for WW1 being approx. 38/40 chest. Khaki lining cloth as found on these tunics. Argylls brass buttons although there was a set of GS buttons in the pocket when it came to me so likely left the factory with them before the soldier applied his Regimental buttons.. Evidence of having had shoulder titles. One very small hole otherwise as nice as they come with no moth. Tunics like this are extremely difficult to find and this I got from a house in Oban. Tunic only. The following is an excerpt from an article on Great War tunics from the GWF. Late war tunics and Canadian tunics did have khaki liners and late war ones also had stitched labels. When troops returned home their old war worn uniforms (which only survived about 1 month of front line wear) were taken off and destroyed, new ones were issued so the troops looked good when they disembarked in Folkestone, Dover etc. For these reasons most surviving genuine WW1 O.R. uniforms will be late war productions and could therefore have tan liners and stitched labels. Indeed I would be far more wary if I saw a tunic with white liner and remains of a paper label. The misunderstanding that all WW1 liners were white with paper labels is quite common. WW1 seems to have been the swan song for Moore Taggart & Co as military outfitters and they featured strongly in the kitting out of Canadian units over the period 1913-14. V.G.C.

WW2 BRITISH CRUISE VISOR HELMET - RARE The rarest of all WW2 British helmets produced for use primarily for bomb disposal teams and armoured car crews. There were 5,000 helmets produced in this configuration with the pull down armoured visor. Good overall " As Found " condition, untouched and totally original. My first one since 1985 and it's unlikely I'll find another. Named to inner apron and correct 1940 date. I believe there was only one production run of these helmets so all should be dtd. 1940. Steel Helmet Visors Seventy-five per cent of all blindness suffered by soldiers during the Great War was due not to eye disease but to injuries caused by shell, bomb and grenade explosions. The great majority of these injuries were the result of fragments of metal which penetrated no deeper than the eye itself and which, had they struck elsewhere on the body, would have caused only trivial harm. The question of some form of eye protection designed to reduce the incidence of eye injury and blindness was therefore raised immediately on the outbreak of the Second World War by Sir Richard Cruise, an eminent opthalmic surgeon. Captain Cruise, as he then was, had in 1917 designed a form of chain visor which could be attached to the rim of the British Mark 1 steel helmet. Although it was intended to help reduce or prevent injuries to the eyes, in practice it proved to be unpopular with the troops. A modified and improved version was developed in 1918 but this, too, failed to find acceptance and eventually it was withdrawn. In 1939 samples of a further modified 'Cruise' visor were sent over to the British Expeditionary Force in France. This version was so designed that when not in use it could lie under the rim of the steel helmet. However, the reports of its use in the BEF were so inconclusive that 5,000 visors were manufactured to allow for a large scale trial to take place; unfortunately, military events overtook their production, and before they could be despatched Dunkirk had fallen to the Germans and the survivors from the BEF were back in Britain. Trials were carried out instead by troops of the Home Forces in the autumn of 1940, but reports submitted by the troops trying out the Cruise visor and the advice of the Medical Research Council were against the adoption of any form of metal visor. It was found that rain made it difficult for the wearer to see through the visor, and the drops of water could not be shaken off easily. Stereo-scopic vision was impaired, the wearer's field of vision was reduced, and his ability to see in the dark whilst wearing the visor was markedly affected. In the light of these adverse reports the Army Council decided against any form of protective visor being adopted, and although work on Perspex visors was being undertaken no satisfactory type was developed , and in 1941 on the advise of the Medical Research Council, the whole matter was dropped.
