Truly an amazing post from Tug ! These pics are both impressive and frightening and remind us the formidable power of modern weapons... when you hold an M1 in your hands, you surely think how strong it is, but the truth is that facing a bullet or a shrapnel, well... anyway, it's still better than only wearing a cap, as our ancestors did till the second year of WWI.
This helmet also reminds us that the Falklands War, often viewed as a "small war" outside UK and Argentina, was in fact a truly violent and bloody war, albeit short.

So, thanks again to Tug
