    Original configuration, but unfortunately without the chinstrap. Usually this is Polish one for WZ 31 helmet. Some WZ 31 was also used by Estonian army, probably smal quantity of them was mixed with the Swedish/Polish/Estonian M 38/40 helmet.

    Very nice picture, the soldier is being worn M26 jacket ( similar to the soviet gimnasterka) with estonian insignia on the collar, probably spring of 1940 year?

    I agree, this photo is taken in a camp somewhere in the beginning of 1940.

    Its a very simple postcard size photo and I think that I would have not bought it if I hadnt seen that helmet being worn by one guy in the back
