My thoughts on collecting, especially in the world of Military History and Militaria.

I had mentioned this to some people before- an Engineer Special Brigade helmet that I had been offered (for $$$) and then was sold on ebay.
The rediish arc and blotches I am pretty sure are aged gas detection paint. In some color films of Navy troops at D-day this front blotch is seen a lot. But anyway this helmet has started rumors of "red" arcs for D-day, which it just isn't. Very neat helmet though.
