GERMAN CUTOUT HELMET M1918
Size: Large (22" / 55.88cm internal circumference)
Material: 18 gauge steel
M1918 German Helmets had cutouts in the rim along the sides of the helmet to improve hearing and to reduce echo created by the large, flared skirt of regular helmets. Includes the three leather sections that make up the liner and the new designed two-piece chin strap which attaches directly to the helmet liner rather than the shell.
The bolts on each side of the helmet were used to support an optional shield, the (Stirnpanzer which we also sell) used mainly by snipers. The bolts are hollow for ventilation under the helmet.
