Us Wwi Doughboy Helmet Tank Corps 328th Bat. Co. A

Beginnings of the U.S. Tank Corps took place during the First World War. The three colored triangle was adopted using colors from the three branches of the Army from which officers were chosen: Yellow-Cavalry; Blue-Infantry; Red-Artillery. The opposite side has the adopted "Black Cat" Treat 'em Rough insignia. If you look this saying up on the internet there is a great WW1 poster of a ferocious black cat with it's tail pinched and claws extended, flames in the background and in the animals eyes. It reads: TREAT 'EM ROUGH! above and below JOIN THE TANKS / UNITED STATES TANK CORPS. On the day of the Armistice 11-11-18, the US Tank Corps had 483 Officers and 7700 enlisted men. This is a very scarce WW1 helmet.
I had to was the dirt off of this recent cellar find before I took these photos so you may see some wetness around the rim. There is no liner, but the gray padding is present including the piece that fell out and is missing in the photos. That is included. Underneath that is gauze liner. One of the hand made bales is bent outward somewhat. But both chinstrap swivels work freely. The paper instruction tag is still present but hardly readable. Manufacturer's code ZA 196 stamped on inside rim.The Tank Corps was organized at Camp Colt near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and was commanded by Dwight D. Eisenhower in the Spring of 1918. The Gettysburg Battlefield was used for maneuvers. The soldiers of the 328th American Expeditionary Force or A.E.F. went to France to practice with the French Renault tanks. You can watch 15 free short newsreel films of these maneuvers by going to bbcmotiongallery and search for 328th Tank Battalion.Of course General George Patton cut his teeth on the WW1 American Tank Corps and became famous for his tank tactics in World War 2.No international shipping!
