    No, actually, they had helmets that sort of resembled the old pith helmets...

    There is one to in BeBro's list.

    Interesting detail : the helmet had no visor for religious reason : one should not hide his eyes from the sun...
    Very convenient in battle!

    I didn't realize that Bayonets were still in use by WW1....weren't they discarded some time after the opening of the war and the devolving of the combat into Trench Warfare?

    .. Bayonets were still in use in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam.. some countries still use them. They were probably most used and most beneficial in WWI.

    Some countries indeed- even the US is developing future rifles that bear a possibility to attach bayonets. From the pic you can see, however, that since WWII the banonet is shorter, its blade meant more as a knife alternate rather than old style stabbing instrument.

    I've been very dissapointed by the slow advancement this century. They promised my parents that we'd have laser weapons, flying cars, and commercial and military spaceflight to other planets by now....wheres the beef? :confused:

    :lol:

    Well I didn't say you can purchase them- they have been designed and built and tested as prototypes- and they work...
