    I often thought of how difficult it would be to tell friendly from foe in a snow camo situation . Especially on the Eastern front where the use of captured weapons was common , along with many irregular forces . Maybe he was almost shot a couple times by friendly fire and came up with this solution .

    The eagle on the visor appears to be a breast eagle that is too high up on the hat--the edges obscure the piping:
