HOLD (dr) US Army WWII ID’d Colonel’s Netted M1 Helmet


This is a very sharp, historic US Army M1 helmet, ranked and identified to a Colonel in the US Army, who served during WWI and on through WWII, completing a 30 year career and being awarded for bravery in combat. His name, unit and other information are included in the pictured documents in this listing. A great helmet, rare St.Clair liner, no flaws or tampering, right from the family. His named and marked Gaiters are included! COA accompanies. **Updated information from the researcher:

“Since he received both a French Croix de Guerre and a Soviet Order of the Patriotic War 2nd Class, he went across Europe from Normandy to the link-up with the Russians.

Attached find a record of him coming home from France in 1919 when he was with the 809th Pioneer Infantry (Colored). He ended up in New Jersey and died in Monmouth County in 1970 which was also the Signal School at the time, and he was a Signal Corps officer.
I’ve also attached a copy of the 1948 Officer’s Register which shows his promotion dates and branch transfers. I also attached a copy of the Bridgewater NJ Courier News from 1955 which gives a pretty decent recap of his service.”
