Hi all,


Acquired an M1 helmet that had some unique characteristics so while researching, I stumbled upon on M2 thread here on this website.  Needless to say, it was an treasure trove of information.


That all being said, I'm a member of round canopy parachute team that does airshow and commemorative parachute jumps such as the Normandy anniversary, Market-Garden and occasionally Varsity. Since the focus was initially on WWII paratroopers (since branched out a little bit), it was natural that I became even more interested in the equipment they used.


In the end, I've ended up with several helmets and other little knick knacks. Thanks for letting me be a part and I look forward to reading.
