  2. Hello, My world, 8th Infantry Division during WW1/WW2 : Max
  3. Hello, British Mark I helmet with steel plates supplied by Hadfields Ltd as evidenced by the marking on the hull "HS 75". The Americans were first equipped with the British helmet. Subsequently, the country manufactured its own helmet, copied from the British model in a few details and as of November 11, 1918, there were 2,700,000 helmets M1917 manufactured in less than a year. However, it isn’t uncommon to see American soldiers with British helmets. I present you this British helmet in the colours of the 8th Infantry Division with a painting typical of the period of the return at home

  5. Hello everyone, I present you my latest acquisitions. 8th Infantry Division WW1/WW2 erea, my theme of collection... Max
  6. Hi, Thanks to all. The weapon is a fake. Max
  7. This dummy is dedicated to Hayden Furrow, WW2 veteran of the 121st Infantry, 8th Division. The phrase – ”the Lost Battalion” – is sufficient stimulus to the minds of veteran members of the 121st Infantry to recall the unusual stint of fighting for the Brittany coastal resort of Dinard from August 7-14. For five of the eight days of battle, the exact location and daily welfare of Lt. Col. Gordon Eyler’s 3rd battalion were questions that defied answers. GI of the 121st Infantry Rgt during this battle in 1944 !

Dondero, Inc. was started in 1922 by Colonel A.H. Dondero.
