    Royal Afghan ARmy / German M16 Helmet

    Post by Waldo71 on Thu May 28, 2015 4:08 am

    Gentlemen,

    finally, it has arrived.
    Germany has sold WW1 helmets to Afghanistan in the 20ies/30ies.
    This one was rediscovered in the 911 conflicgt and takeb home by a Canadian soldier.
    Modern technology has lead it back to Germany.

    Cheers,
    Waldo.

    That one is in very good condition as well! I had one but it did not have a liner ad was too rusted for my collection.  I did retain the ANA seal on the side of the helmet because it had a nice enamel finish and you rarely find them on the helmets.

    Thanks, everybody!

    @airborne1968:
    Would you mind showing a photo of the ANA badge?
