Mikey,
I have your correct email address but everything sent comes back as 'failed delivery'.
Lloyd Hevelhorst is also trying to contact you.

I just received two emails from Mikey. He wanted me to pass on to all that he he has been violently ill since the 23rd, and has received no emails until he got mine. he asked that I pass on his appreciation to all those who expressed it, and he hopes to be back up and around in the next couple of days.

It's a repro that was supposedly made in Zululand by "Zulu craftsmen" in the late 80's Shocked

Mikey,

Interesting. One wonders what the Zulu craftsmen were using as their reference. An original gained during the AZW?!

The latest addition to my collection. Named to a Cottel who served with the 11TH Bearer Company. His rank was either a LT-Col or a Maj.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page where you will find excellent (but expensive) repro helmets.
