Even in cases of extreme risk, not only has death been avoided, but injuries have been confined to bruises or superficial wounds. Cases have occurred in which the wearers have been hit, but saved by these helmets from what without them would have meant certain death.
The Helmet in detail Perhaps the first thing to look out for when examine an M1 helmet is the shell. The shell can tell you a lot about the helmets age and in some cases its usage.
