Men assemble military helmets at a factory in United States. They attach chin strap and dip helmets into paint tanks. Men wipe off helmets to remove a coat of tallow applied to prevent rusting. Helmets placed on rack, dipped in paint tank and hung to dry on stands. After applying sawdust helmets placed in bake oven. Military and civilian personnel examine helmets carefully. Helmets put into wooden crate and shipment lid placed onto it. Crates stenciled, seals soldered and crates fastened with wires. Wooden crates piled up for shipment.
