Эстонский шлем М 40
Раскопки в Эстонии, августе 2010 года. Данные каски изготавливались в Польше и поставлялись в Эстонию. Шлем могли использовать как трофей Советские солдаты, так и Эстонцы воевавшие за Вермахт. Каска имеет пулевое отверстие на вылет.
This helmet was found in August 2010. I recently discovered this footage on my old pc, and decided it would be nice to share. My apologies for the bad quality of the first part of the video, but at the time I didn't have the HD camera yet.. The helmet we found in this video is an Estonian M40 helmet, originally made in Poland and sold to Estonia. We found this helmet in Estonia, in a German trenchline. Most likely it was either re-used by Soviet forces during the war (photographs exist with Russian soldiers wearing M40 helmets) or worn by an Estonian soldier who volunteered in the German army. Either way it's an outstanding piece of history and a very rare helmet to find.
