We went to a World War II reenactment and airshow this past weekend. All of the reenactors were eager to share their knowledge and passion about that part of history. I was astounded to learn that almost everything item there was collected by the individuals, and they go to great lengths to find and preserve even everyday items that were used by the soldiers.

It was fun to watch the airshow with all the old planes doing loops and rolls. Somehow I don’t think that this helmet would protect the pilot very well is things went amiss, but I’m sure it was state-of-the-art armor at the time.
