I thought I would add an M1917 medical helmet from the 26th Division that I just picked up from a forum member.

Here is a helmet that I used to own. FOXY-29 hospital apprentice sailor stationed aboard LST-400 off the coast of Utah Beach during D-Day. Looks like he only used it for the invasion. Excellent condition. It is now on display at a museum in Normandy.

This was worn throughout the war by CPhM Irving W. Buecher on the LST 230 (Normandy, D-Day) and later on the YSM 418 (Pacific, including Nagasaki).

Great helmets, Bill. love the pharmacist mate ones. I must admit that the 2nd BB helmet looks a bit off to me. Do you have more info on it?
