The ROARING TWENTIES (1939) film "German Trench Helmet"


Recommended Posts

Then was COMBAT, forgot about that, they did use the M16/M18s, but as far as I can see from an image search, but used Mock Ups more often than not, again, what no real ones, WWII M35-M40, M42,they simply  could,nt lay they're hands on any!, maybe they really didn't know the difference???? curious right.

This guy appears to have a Spanish helmet as you can see what looks like a hole in the front where a clip would have been...It's also lacking the suspension pins found in the temple areas of true Wehrmacht helmets, seen on the other helmet in the picture....

This guy is likely wearing the same style helmet....Bodes

Here's a same type worn in Hogan's Heroes, though Sergeant Schultz's was a real one, an M42, not sure if the tricolor shield decal was original though, those were ordered removed by the time they were made.

Some M42's were double decaled....Polizei for instance....I agree Schultz (John Banner's) helmet and Luftwaffe decal appear to be original wartime production....However the tri-color has a noticeable white border, which denotes it as being a reproduction....

 

Original wartime M42 Army/Air Force helmets are said to have been issued in limited numbers, but 1940 regulations called for that decal (tri-color) to be covered or removed for the remainder of the war....This wasn't something that was always enforced however...Bodes

I think Hasbro was selling the Germans short, or just selling short Germans....Bodes
