RUSSIAN SOVIET RED ARMY M1938 HELMET c1940

This M1938 Steel Lemet was nicknamed the "Khalhingolka" helmet for its widespread use at the Battles of Khalkhin Gol, the decisive engagements of the undeclared Soviet-Japanese border conflicts fought among the Soviet Union, Mongolia, Japan and Manchukuo in 1939. The conflict was named after the river Khalkhin Gol, which passes through the battlefield. The battles resulted in the defeat of the Japanese Sixth Army. By 1942, the M1938 helmet was out of use in the west, as large numbers had been captured by the Germans.
