Camouflage Helmets III

This section covers helmets in the “Normandy camo” scheme. The “Normandy” terminology is used somewhat loosely by collectors as helmets in this three-color scheme have been found in all occupied countries along the “West Wall” fortified coastline. They are more or less standard with small variations.
