    Many a fake SS FJ helmet out there. All of their helmets were no decals if I recall.

    I have seen a few pics of them wearing single decal Lufwaffe lids. But like Doug says no helmets with runic decals.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Agree never seen an SS Decal on a Fallschirmjager helmet that was real or an original photo of such.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
