Always think when I see todays Riot cops/military helmets, wherever in the world, just how much they are a modern interpretation of WW2 German Stalhelm’s, camo covers or not!
I’ve a original one inherited from my Dad that sadly and for whatever reason he painted, no doubt devaluing it but yep, those guys must have had small heads or I've a big one (my head!!) at 59cm, ‘cos it certainly don’t fit unless i take the liner out!!

Had a few WWII German Helmets over the years. There are larger sizes out there, but finding one is a little like finding an original size 48, A2 jacket. They are tough to find, as people were just built smaller than they are today .

I think At The Front has info on 2 or 3* different sizes that were issued.

*Okay, maybe 5?
