In this second part of The Stahlhelm, the Casque Adrian, and the Tin Hat, we take a look at the British soldiers preparing themselves for the Battle of the Somme. The British Expeditionary Force of 1916 was vastly different from the Old Contemptibles who had come across the Channel in 1914, and this was a very different army from its German adversary and even its French ally.
