Store: German Repro Items: Paratrooper Helmet M37 Model Medic

M37 Model with M38 liner German Paratrooper Helmet Medical Orderly Ardennes: This is a first class reproduction of a Luftwaffe (Air Force), Medical Orderly German Paratrooper Helmet. It is based on a very rare M37 model shell, with early 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 intially in Europe (Luftwaffe Field Grey), then overpainted in white, during the 'Battle of the Bulge' in the Ardennes region of Begium - winter 1944.

The decals are 95% intact and both decals have been carefully painted round by the owner and are 100% visible. The owner has has name painted inside the helmet rim - 'Gefr. Schmidt' . Notice the goggles which also come with this helmet, they are WW2 German design and were used both in the desert and winter climates.

Check out the ageing to this helmet, it is superb, the liner has the look and feel of a 60+ year old field used helmet as has the shell and chinstraps. The straps even show cracking and ageing in places! There is even a partial shell acceptance stamp inside the dome, which can be viewed by pulling back the lower liner (too difficult to photograph I'm afraid!).

This German paratrooper helmet would make a superb item in your paratrooper collection. It would also make a great filler till you get a genuine M37 'Battle of the Bulge' Medic helmet which is highly unlikely as very few M37's survived the war and those that did are very expensive!

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