WWII 88th Infantry Division Helmet


Recommended Posts

Here is an 88th ID helmet "Fighting Blue Devils" I was able to work a trade for recently. According to the story, it was recently found in a barn in Italy. Some of you may have already seen this posted on the WAF. I am using Stefanos pictures due to the dismal weather we're having today and the fact that they are good. Thanks for looking. Ron

M1A1-1944:

 

Great helmet -- where in Italy did the helmet surface? My cousin was in the 34th ID and later the 88th before shipping home. I am just curious because of my family connection to the unit. I have a photo of my cousin wearing his helmet liner which has the 88th insignia painted on it. A very neat piece -- you are fortunate to have such a great helmet in your collection.

 

Take care,
