WW2 D-Day killed in action helmet of Private Arnold Hargreaves, 13th Battalion Parachute Regiment A once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase an item of historical importance. Second model Airborne Forces steel helmet made by BMB and dated 1943. Early yellow foam to interior and stitched leather chinstraps. Helmet net to exterior. Helmet has clearly seen use and is in the type of condition one would expect. Helmet is named "A HARGREAVES" on chin cup. This is now difficult to see but upon close examination it is clearly there and contemporary with the rest of the helmet. Private A Hargreaves of 13th Battalion Parachute Regiment was parachuted into Normandy on D-Day and sadly listed as killed in action on the CWGC website. After much research I have discovered that not much is known about the circumstances of Private Hargreave's death other than he might have possibly been one of the 8 British parachutists executed by a senior German NCO of 711th Infanterie Division. He was later tried for this war crime and executed in 1948 in Hameln. Helmet came out of France from a farm in the 1970s. More photographs available on request.
