Anyway, first one is a group of Easy co 5th Rng taken shortly after the battle. "Beck" Beccue at right
Both photos below were taken near Saint Renan, North of Brest. Those soldiers are from the 2nd Rng Bn. Photos are not clear but originals are showing camo parachute with no doubts.

These members of the 2nd Rangers battalion have just been awarded the DSC after their action on D-Day at La Pointe du Hoc. Five of them are wearing parachute camo helmet covers.
Hope it helps,

I ran across these photos after reading this thread and thought you would really enjoy seeing them. This photo was taken on June 6th 1944 and was late in the day. It is of either the 1st or 3rd battalion of the 359th Infantry.

No wonder 90th soldiers had para canopy camouflaged helmets. There is an image known where 90th soldier uses even M1A1 para carbine. At Normandy 90th several times had the contacts with the 82nd Abn.
And my camouflaged cap for my long distance forest trips with my dog

Some even sewed camouflaged parachute silk on their berets, which were British Pattern Berets.
