You see my husband is collecting WWII helmets (Matron! in best Kenneth Williams voice) at the moment. He has always had a keen interest on WWI and WWII. The man is at an age (47) where he can start collecting things. He doesn't need any more stuff. "You come into this world with nothing and you leave with nothing" - my grandad. Having said that, men still like to collect things.
When he first declared his intention of collecting WWII helmets I had visions of people stepping into our house thinking they'd come across some Right Wing Nazi den. Something out of Pulp Fiction or Falling Down where Michael Douglas goes into the Army supplies store. My husband is so left wing practically communist that I didn't want people to get the wrong impression. Thankfully his little collection of British Tommy, French, Spanish, Russian etc helmets look pretty cool. There are 9 in total and we all like to have a turn at trying them on. I'm planing on having a helmet wearing dinner party any day now.
