Hi,

Do you have some pictures of the anti-flak US M-5 helmet in action ?

Thanks in advance.

That would seem to be a rare find: when conditions call for a flak helmet, who's taking pictures? :)

I went through the LIFE Magazine archives at Google and the only photo even showing flyers with steel pots was this one of a B-24 crew in 1944:

Not an M-5, but here is a Yellow Star.
