UK paratrooper and two German helmets

Whent down to Malmo and picked up a small helmet lot from a very nice old gentleman that has answered my add.

At the age of 15 in may 1945 he got these helmets while attending a scout meeting on in Danemark right at the border to Germany. The local Danish scout organisation had collected alto of helmets from soldiers passing on there way to back to Germany.

He mentioned that a helmet costed 10 cigarettes and a SS dagger about packs :-)

On the way back to Sweden the Swedish customs didn't like the items they bought back but they told them it was for a war museum that they should start back in Sweden.

Its one DD M40 Police helmet, M40 Army helmet and a Brittish paratrooper helmet.

Thanks Karl
