WW2 Sniper Veil netted helmet - named


Recommended Posts

I’ve read about these Sniper veil nets and always wanted one but they are extremely elusive and difficult to find due to there construction im told. 

This came up so I hit the button on it, 

firstly how rare are these netted originals and can anyone help with the name. I’ve found a Jesse P Bolen who enlisted in 42 and was a PVT. 


underneath his name is written something which I can’t quite make out. 
CEM ? 

All help and comments would be most appreciated 


- Dean

That really is a pretty cool looking net. I think I've only ever seen the one that Steve sold some time ago on his site

Nets of that kind were used in the SWPA by the 32nd ID and the 503rd PIR. That don't show up very often. Nice one!
