"Battle Battered" ESB Captain

The 6th Engineer Special Brigade was formed from the HHC, 1116th Engineer Combat Group on May 15, 1944, in England. The brigade participated in the invasion of Normandy (Omaha Beach) and remained there until Christmas Eve 1944. The 6th ESB moved to France on New Year's Day 1945 and remained there until redeploying to the United States on July 14, 1945. The brigade arrived in the United States on July 23, 1945, and was inactivated at Camp Gordon Johnston on October 20 of that year.

  • "Battle Battered" ESB Captain paint

    The paint used on this Battle Battered version is the same as our other helmets. It's an Olive Drab color used by the US Army between 1936 and 1944. The medical markings are also weathered to match the rest of the helmet.

  • "Battle Battered" ESB Captain texture

    The M1 infantry ESB helmet shell was coated with a cork texture that served both practical and aesthetic purposes. The texture broke up the soldier's silhouette and reduced sun glare, providing camouflage and protection. The cork is applied with the paint, making it an integral part of the helmet's design.

  • "Battle Battered" ESB Captain chin strap

    The M1 helmet's ESB chinstrap is a replica created by Mon Casque M1, featuring a woven strap that accurately resembles the original. Although the metal buckles used in the chinstrap were produced after the war, they still provide a secure fastening to the helmet and contribute to its durability.
