Re: Japanese & U.S.M.C. Helmets

S.Vestae,Thanks. I knew I had it somewhere. With all the snow we got I had time to look.
Dawn Patrol,Thanks. 20 some years ago one walked into the Army/Navy store when I was helping my friend. I was not interested in it. I was grabbing the German stuff most of the time. I did get some U.S. though. Please post your pack if you can find it. Rich A. in Pa.
