M1 Paratrooper Shell

The M1 helmet shell was a crucial item for American paratroopers during World War II, providing protection from debris, sun and rain. In addition to its protective function, it was also used in everyday life, serving as a basin for shaving or even as a pot when supplies were scarce.
