    Hi,

    I became interested in Swiss uniforms.
    Anybody knows any good online sources ?
    I only found few very basic ones.

    Thanks.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    It all depends on which time period you are looking for? If you are looking for modern ones, many surplus stores online have these in stock.

    Swiss M1918 Type II or M18/40 Helmet with M40 type liner. Helmet has dark textured finish introduced in 1943. One of 3 types of M18 - original M18 - Type I , M18/40 - Type II and M18/63 - Type III. There is also mention of M18/43 - possibly meaning it is a M18/40, but with textured finish as some M18/40 were issued without the textured finish.

    Thanks for showing! Finally one with the correct helmet cover, I only see Swiss helmets like this with the alpenflage camouflage intended for the kevlar helmet.
