Due for publication soon. Not exactly cheap but potentially interesting?

Interesting.  Probably a lot of sad things happened.

Agree a lot of sad things must have happened for the equipment to be in such condition.. I hope that the authors understand the sensitivity of this type of book and understand if they do not sell many copies, that although these are grim reminders of the truth of war, I wonder how they can show sensitivity and compassion when showing a helmet with shell fragments knowing that the wearer in some cases may not have survived..

I agree with you Smitty. The interior of a genuine head-shot helmet would not be a pretty sight and might attract the attention of ghoulish voyeurs.
