Found this pic and wondered why they did this? Helmets sitting upside down on three short stakes. It's not to collect water as the camps had water and wasn't done at all camps.

268th C.A.

It looks like maybe water for shaving was coming around... Just a guess. The helmets wouldn't roll over and spill the water.... no liners inside...

Here's another pic. This one shows the helmets being held in place by tent pegs.
