Schleuter helmet from the antique show...


Recommended Posts

I came across this helmet , pilot's kit bag and ribbon bar at a local antique show. The shell is a Schleuter and I believe the liner is a Hood Rubber though it lacks the"HR" initials. It belonged to Sgt. Arthur T. "Doc" Savage. The dates of his assignments are listed on the kit bag , the earliest year being (19)50. I think his medal bar shows both an Army Good Conduct as well as an Air Force version. So I guess he was in the Army/USAAF before the USAF?

I know the neck band & sweat band are later replacements. There are the remains of pieces of cellophane tape inside the liner as well as the name "Schatzi" maybe the tape secured a pic of a wife or girlfriend?

The OLC on the USAF marksmanship ribbon should actually be a star, no? Also, the NCOPMER ribbon looks "cleaner" than the rest of the rack.
