WW1 US 77th Division Doughboy Helmet The Lost Battalion


A cool find that was lost in the shop, a original 77th infantry division painted m1917 helmet. The 77th is known for being the 9 companies who are referred to as “The Lost Battalion” which the film was made depicting their actions during the closing days of WWI. Originally consisting of 554 men, isolated by German forces during World War I after an American attack in the Argonne Forest in October 1918. Roughly 197 were killed in action and approximately 150 missing or taken prisoner before the 194 remaining men were rescued. What a awesome piece of WW1 history, there are several spots of probable battle damage in the dome. Hope y’all enjoy
