Order of the People's Commissar of Defense of the Union, numbered 227, dated July 28, 1942, Moscow. Not one step back! without the order of high command. The only reason for leaving a fighting position can only be death. Very rare 100% original!!! It was found in the Novgorod forests in a propaganda bomb.
The helmet was found in Ukraine, at the site of Nikopolsko-Kryvyi Rog operation (read more about Nikopolsko-Kryvyi Rog operation), according to the events of the fighting in 1944. The helmet was found a very long time ago, in the 1970s and was in the same collection. On the liner, two names of soldiers, the name of one is established, he died during this attack, on February 4, 1944. The name of the first owner has not yet been established. Mayer was certainly the second owner of the helmet. The helmet is in excellent condition and very heavy.
