Thought the armor helmet and steel helmet collectors might like seeing these pics. The armor one speaks for itself. The group photo of the men in the steel helmets, they are in front of a large trailer, maybe communications men? Not quite sure what their helmets say, but I sort of think rank and then their last name. Seems like PFC is visible on one of the helmets, and perhaps something like T5 on some of the others? Just not sure.

Names on helmets?

 

The guys in the second photo are all wearing helmet liners. It looks like it was taken during WW2 era stateside training. Names on liners was common. Cool photos!

Any identification on this photo, name, unit, date, etc. Is this copyrighted or can I use it ?

It actually looks like tape, or maybe the paint was applied very thick.

The helmet being held buy the guy in the top middle looks strange. Any idea what it is?

The guy at the top left is holding a liner with the front edge facing downward.

Here's one of my favorite. I didn't save the caption unfortunately, but if memory serves, this photograph was taken in Italy in May 1944, minutes after their tank was destroyed.
