Soviet ShLO-50 helmet

Post by will45 »

Hello all,

I'm looking for photographs of the Soviet ShLO-50 (ШЛO-50) mesh top leather helmet if anybody has one. Also seeking scans of any related documentation referring to it. The only image I have is the attached magazine scan which doesn't give much detail. The only other information I have is the mention of the helmet by Alexei Gershin on the old site.

If any documentation exists, it's likely to be in the form of the small booklet/manuals that were issued with new helmets and inclusive of all the sub-variants. Have attached examples of a later manual for the ShL-61 series helmet.

Cheers, Willie.
