Tips for Roman helmet
It is recommended that you make the Legionaries-to-be aware, not to use the helmet under humid climatic conditions. Just like the real model. The legionaries who were based along the Limes had to prevent their helmets from the moisture or to maintain it regularly in order to protect it from permanent damage. If the Roman helmet is too big for your junior-legionnaire, you can arrange it to fit with a woolen cap or something similar. Since the cardboard helmet is not leather padded, this method with the cap is certainly recommended.
