Is there any other paperwork/personal effects still with the family? If there was, it sure would be nice to keep it with the helmet...
ps-original vmo-4 patch below...

That's a great find :thumbsup: I agree with Pat, it would be nice to keep everything together if the family have more of Lt Olson's effects. Great story behind the helmet.

Pat: There were a few more news clippings and photos as well as what has been posted. Nice patch you have there! In the original photo of Olson by his plane, the white ball behind him on the fuselage is identifiable as the insignia of VMO-4 (Can't see it on the scan, dang)
Glad the helmet is met with approval by all! - Thanks, gents.
