M42 single Decal SS with Whitewash remnants
« on: January 06, 2019, 11:20:55 PM »
   Not great pics, but here is a beauty of an M42 SS helmet that was brought home by a Major Ochs of the Field Artillery. This was part of the current museum clean out we are working on, but in a twist of delightful irony, Major Ochs Son lives in our community and asked the other museum to allow us to take all of his Dad's items so they would be displayed. The other museum is a local history museum, not a military museum... We received this and the lightweight police helmet as well. There are still remnants of a whtewash having been applied and its just a really cool helmet.  Scott

Scott,

Once again I am speechless.. The SS helmet is incredible.. On my wish list someday but with the soaring prices I can only dream right now...

I like the police helmet too...

  Thanks Leigh, you should have seen me when I found it in a box, I nearly fell over as I pulled it out and saw the decal. I am back there again tomorrow (Tuesday) to fetch another load and do more sorting. We basically sorted ourselves to a standstill as we ran out of room! Its like a real life treasure hunt to be sure. I will post more as I get things back to our museum.   Thanks as always!  Scott
