Treasure Chest Thursday - Grandpa's WWI helmet

Apparently, Grandpa (Richard Roos) saved his WWI helmet.  After I don't know how many decades of sitting in a cardboard box, it now enjoys a place of honor.  I was able to make a definitive identification of it by the 91 Division's evergreen tree insignia on the front.  By the way, their motto - Always Ready.

There's even still a blank piece of the stationary Grandpa used to write home on stuck way up in the crown.
