Store: German Repro Items: Paratrooper Helmet M37 Model with M38 liner

M37 Model with M38 liner Fallschirmjägerhelm (Paratroopers Helmet Normandy): This is a first class reproduction of a Luftwaffe (Air Force), Fallschirmjager Helmet. It is based on a very rare M37 model shell, with late pattern helmet bolts. It has been modified using M38 liner which was common practice in mid-late war when earlier produced models were pressed into service. Notice the slots at the side of the helmet and the extra holes for retaining the original liner at the sides and rear.

This helmet is based on one used at Normandy in June 1944. It has its original luftwaffe field grey colour and a single eagle decal which is 100% intact. The owner has has name painted inside the helmet rim - 'F. Lau' and which appears to be a unit sign 'I/II'. Unfortunately the owner was killed early on in the battle for Normandy by the American Airborne and the battle damage is plain to see.

The inner lining leather has completely gone and the aluminium liner band and padding is very worn and fragile. One of the late war spanner bolts is missing and the remaining three are all aluminium. Check out the ageing to this relic helmet, it is superb!

This helmet would make a superb item in you fallschirmjäger collection. It would make a great filler till you get a genuine M37 Normandy helmet which is highly unlikely as it is thought that no M37's survived the war!

This item comes in a suitable aged box and a 'send home' label! A great present for the military collector!
