Do you have list, photos with this helmet bfore d day, name of veteran which still exists of this C/326 ? or 3/506 ? because they are ine the same plane. Thank you soo much Regards
  9. Hello all I am passionate about the Second World War. I live in france so my English is not good, I apologize in advance. I particularly collect objects related to the 502 PIR only from Normandy, including objects from the field (from digging or recovering from inhabitants). I search, I sell and I exchange everything on the 502 PIR Normandy. My collection focuses on helmets. I have helmets with heart insignia M1 and M2 D-bales. I am also here to share my knowledge on this theme that I know well because I have been doing this for several years. For the rest, it is you who will teach me. See you soon Raphael raphaeldurand33320@gmail.com
