There has been an excellent discussion on the WWI painted helmet lately. I would like to see as many examples of painted or otherwise decorated helmets as possible. Whether they were done in the trenches, done on the ship home or as a decoration for local American Legion/VFW hall, please post them!
Here is one from my collection. This one shows service in the 150th Field Artillery, 42nd (Rainbow) Division. 150th FA was (and still is) an Indiana National Guard unit. The painting indicates the vet spent 18 months overseas and was wounded.
