  • MH Spangenhelm - 16 gauge

    This helmet comes from a small group of closely related Spangenhelms (strap helmets).

Over time Spangenhelms were replaced by one piece skulls like nasal helmets and kettle hats.

  • German Paratrooper Helmet

    The Fallschirmjäger was formed in 1935 and it became apparent that they would require different kit to that of the regular infantry. The existing M1935 "Stahlhelm" was adapted by removing the projecting visor and flared rim to become the M1938 "Fallschirmhelm". The modified shell incorporated a more substantial leather liner and chin strap than that of regular infantry helmet and afforded a greater level of protection that was required by airborne assault troops.

    This replica is a faithful copy of an original and is constructed from 18 gauge steel with adjustable leather liner and chin strap.

    Width: 23cm
    Depth: 16cm
    Height:15cm
    Circumference: 61cm
    Weight:1350g 

    All dimensions are approximate and may vary from piece to piece.

    This item comes with a light protective coating of oil to prevent rusting in transit. It can be removed easily with a cloth.
