WW2 US 81st Airborne Anti-Aircraft Battalion , 101st Airborne Div M1 Helmet , Normandy Campaign

A rare US M1 helmet with dual insignia to helmet & liner of the 81st Airborne Anti- Aircraft Battalion of the 101st Airborne Division. These were Gliderborne troops who saw action at Utah beach , Carentan , Holland & the Ardennes.
A totally original & untouched helmet from the Normandy campaign it is of the early fixed bales with front seam configuration & has two white diamonds painted to each side . This is also repeated on the liner . The chinstrap buckle & hook are of the early raised bar pattern in stamped brass with a coating to prevent corrosion. The helmet shell has heavy wear to inside & out with this also evident to the liner which has a very well worn leather headband & some displacing of webbing straps due to wear & corrosion. There is rust to the metal rivets from many years of outside storage & so we can date the use of the steel rivets here to around the early to midwar period. The ink marking 'J&J' (Johnson & Johnson) can be seen to the cotton webbing & also to the nape strap. The nape strap has very largely illegible markings however close examination appears to reveal the contract number '25951' referring to a contract date of June 4th 1942 ( See pg 130 of the superb reference M-1 Helmet by Oosterman ). Liner is made by INLAND who only manufactured liners up to 1943.
A very rare helmet which has not been on the collectors market before.

An internet search of this very active unit will provide the full fascinating story of this units history.

Dutch M1895 Infantry Bayonet With Scabbard & Integral Frog

A good example of the Dutch M1895 bayonet as issued for use with the M1895 rifle .
In common with the rifle, early examples were imported from Austria-Hungary, with production subsequently being undertaken at the Netherlands Royal Arsenal at Hembrug. The bayonet is marked ' HEMBRUG' to the ricasso & has a distinctive tapering T-section blade. A leather belt-frog is permanently rivetted to the scabbard very much resembling that of the Lee Metford.
These were in use pre 1914 & thus of First World war period as well as into the Second World war.
Nice clean piece with serial number to crossguard & numbers to rear of frog.
