    Default German helmets with Heer decals in Finnish use

    In 1944 Finland received a stock of helmets from Germany, that still had the Heer decal on them. During the massive Karelian offensive '44 Finns didn't have the time to remove these decals and thus you can see some odd photos in the SA-kuva archives. At least this is the story that I've heard about these helmets.

    I'll start with a couple of photos, but there should be plenty more saved in my archives.
