This helmet and others like it were worn by members of the German artillery as they moved guns through the mud and sludge during the March 1918 offensive, and later during the scenes in which the German soldiers see Joey caught in the wire. The helmet – a steel replica German helmet used for background soldiers – features a leather liner with the name “Ocean” written internally. A vinyl strike plate with a leather strap, designed to fit on the front of an M17 helmet, is present on front of the piece.
Featuring some dirt and wear from use on the muddy trench sets, the helmet remains in overall very good production-used condition.
