DIM'S LIDS - Restored WWII Combat Helmets


I have been interested in military helmets ever since I can remember; even before a family friend gave me an Aussie helmet when I was six. A number of years ago I restored a couple of British helmets and here we are. Though I have a few nice keepers, it is all about restoring for me. I like looking for sad pieces and bringing them back to former glory. My hobby affords me research and record keeping indoors plus time out in the workshop. Selling a few provides resources to buy more projects. Please read the descriptions that accompany my helmet listings and let me know if you want more photos via my contact page.

The helmets on this website are for sale so have a dig around, you might see something you like!
