The helmet was found in Stalingrad in the place of Erzovka, according to the events of the battles in August 1942 on the outskirts of Stalingrad. Helmet and binoculars, found with a non-commissioned soldier. The soldier was found in 2015 and reburied at the memorial cemetery in Rossoshka. The ibinocle helmet was in my collection all the time.
The helmet was found in Stalingrad, in the Soviet region of Volgograd, behind the Volga University. Very heavy helmet, in several front-line repaints. Shrapnel damage is visible on the visor. Together with this helmet, a helmet from a motorcycle battalion of the 24th Panzer Division was found. Apparently all three soldiers were from the same unit.
