Store: German Repro Items: Paratrooper Helmet M36 Model Normandy

M36 Model with M38 liner Heer Fallschirmjägerhelm Normandy: This is a first class reproduction of a Luftwaffe (Air Force), Fallschirmjager Helmet. It is based on a very rare M36 model shell, with late pattern helmet bolts and has been modified using M38 liner which was common practice in mid-late war when earlier produced models were pressed into service. Notice the reinforced slots at the front side of the helmet, rear side and the extra holes for retaining the original liner at the sides and rear. A very rare item indeed!

This helmet is based on one used at the Stendal Parachute Training School by the Luftwaffe Fallschirmjaeger and then withdrawn from service but used again late war during the Normandy landings in 1944. It has its original apple green colour and double decals which are 100% intact. The eagle is a very rare 1st pattern. This helmet represents very light to medium wear and is almost mint by aged condition! The owner has has name painted inside the helmet rim - 'Major Muller' and which appears to be a unit sign 'I/III'. Notice the late war chicken wire basket, a vey common addition during the Normandy campaign. Notice that the liner has a different name 'Gefr Freyberg', so either the liner or shell were swapped!

The inner lining is fully intact and shows medium wear and ageing. It is double marked with liner/shell sizes and manufacturer. Notice the reinforced grommets on the outer rim - superb engineering! It is more difficult to make an original looking 'mint' condition helmet than a camouflage one, so this one really is a good example!

Notice that both decals are protected with varnish, standard German WW2 practice. Hence why so many helmets with decals survived intact - it was so difficult to remove them and this helmet is exactly the same!

This helmet would make a superb item in you fallschirmjäger collection. It would make a great filler till you get a genuine M36 helmet which is highly unlikely as it is thought that only two M36's shells survived the war!

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