A barn find recently in Austria untouched condition M.42 camouflage combat helmet. The exterior shell has been painted with one light coat of what appears to be of the issue ordnance tan, traces of the original field grey can be seen through the paint as it has been applied lightly. Rust flood bleeding through from the main steel shell. The Army single decal is obvious below the paint finish. On inverting the helmet the thinness of the paint application to the inner skirt is clearly seen. The interior bowl is full of many years of barn of shed storage, the liner is all complete but with the tongues bent and solidified. The chinstrap is also complete with traces of an RB numbers to the very tip of the strap. This was found together with another white painted helmet also listed on this site. On viewing the two helmets together their antecedence can clearly be seen.
