This was sent to me by the Nephew of the Veteran that brought the helmet back from Europe…

It was brought back after WWII by my uncle, Colonel William Thomas Watson.  He served in France and Germany in the infantry.  While I don’t know a great deal about his military history, he did fight at the Battle of the Bulge.  During the battle, the radio with his group (I don’t know enough military jargon to know the technical name of the group a colonel would command) went out.  Due to the lack of radio, they did not get the order to retreat.  Because of this, at one point his unit was some number of mile behind the German Lines.   After the war he brought this, along with a German gas mask, a canteen, a few swords and pistols, and some other stuff to my father, who was his younger brother, as souvenirs.   My father, Charles Vernon Watson, was also a colonel, but he was with the marines in the pacific,  1st and then a founder of the 4th division. in the artillery.  When I was a kid my friends always wondered why my father WWII sword had a Swastika on it.  I don’t know the particulars of how he acquired the helmet, but it would have been during the actual war as he came home when the war ended and war not one of those who stayed around a long time after the war.  For most of the time since then it was in my parents and my home.  (Around 1957, after the movie The Vikings came out with Kirk Douglas, it briefly became a Viking helmet as I invaded England every afternoon after school, although it was really to heavy for me to wear well).

WWII M16 Austrian SS-VT Helmet

[Item: H85]

For sale is an excellent example of an Allgemeine-SS transitional helmet, circa 1935. This helmet is one of an evident batch of these which were contracted at the same time by the SS and outfitted in the same facility. They reflect the contract nature of SS acquisition at that time; parts liners, domed retaining rivets, assorted style chinstraps and thin quality satin black over field grey finishes. This shell is marked “EB”. This exact helmet is pictured in SS-Steel, pp 42-43. The decals are classic CA Pocher runic and party shields, showing a small amount of enamel retouch to the runes. Taken with the overall condition of this helmet, this retouch appears to be period done, as was often the case when helmets were being repeatedly polished and prepared for parade use, and decals would flake or diminish. The helmet bears the name “Huska” in the dome. A classic Allgemeine helmet in a known configuration. Price reflects the overall condition and rarity of this piece, and includes certificate of guarantee of authenticity.

Price: SOLD
