Cross-bloggial pollenation (click here)

Many thanks, and a tip of the tin lid, to fellow ACW blogger Andrew Wagenhoffer of Civil War Books and Authors for sending me the pic below.

Its gratifying to know that ACW folks are checking out my helmet blog (http://combathelmets.blogspot.com/). I'll use this photo in a future posting, Thanks again Drew.




By the way, its a very rare "experimental helmet No. 8" manufactured in 1918 by the Ford Motor Company for trial by the U.S. Army.

Keep your heads down!

Mannie,
The Columbian newspaper article link is up now, which includes the photo:

It's nice to know the helmet was designed to withstand a pistol shot from a mere 800 feet!
