    Default URGENT 20 minute countdown, photograph of German soldiers + helmets, legitimate?

    Sorry everyone, I know I've posted a lot of items on here today for verification but I'm determined not to get cheated again. For example, this photograph; lots of German soldiers in the snow, white helmets, allegedly taken in Lapland in 1943. I can't recall seeing anything about Nazis having white helmets. Any thoughts, anyone?

    Helmets were whitewashed for the Russian winter campaigns.

    It was quite common for helmets to be white washed/painted by German soldiers in such climates to aid camouflage. Looks legitimate and not like some re-enactors to me

    EDIT: Beaten to it

    Thanks

    Looks like good snow camo lids to me.

    It's good to find an actually military based photograph rather than just posing soldiers, but the seller's description of it being "post 1950" made me a little concerned it was some post-war scene...

    Sure he does not mean it is a reprint?

    Cheers, Ade.
