Yesterday's show featured a young man who brought in, what he claimed was, his grandfather's helmet which he wore throughout World War 1. He said his grandfather served on the Somme(1916), Gallipoli(1915) & Ypres(1916-1917). I would think this was highly dubious,you would not be transferred from the western front to the invasion of Turkey & then back again, all the campaigns were very bloody you would be very lucky to survive them all.The helmet itself was in pristine condition, with its black original issue colour, this would have been repainted for front line service.

Fantastic program with some very talented restorers . Jay Blades does nothing for this program only to annoy viewers with his lack of input. He is a waste of time and should be removed. He is probably there for the diversity factor and if he is he should quietly leave this program.

Agree but why did they move it? It was more easy to watch in quiet afternoons and there is too much else on at this time.

Surely one of the best programmes on tv. No where near given enough air time.

blades plays no significant roll in this programme. Why are the creators squandering money, resources, and the shows integrity on this person?

Why don't they let Jay do some repairs on furniture, or is there a reason for it.

Why is Jay Blades getting a hard time. I like him. At least he`s not one of these presenters who try and make the program all about them. A good show, with a thumbs up for Jay.
