Investigation of groups of helmets containing various types of defects for the purpose of determining whether or not salvage is possible indicate that 1 No salvage should be attempted when helmets have been exposed to heat sufficiently intense to discolor the metal. 2 Dented helmets may be repaired without danger of increasing the susceptibility to service cracking when the dents are confined to the crown of the helmet. 3 Pin holes in the chin strap loop welds neither impair the strength of the weldment nor lower the ballistic resistance to caliber .45 bullets.
