    Perhaps it was pictures of the Hermann Goering panzer division?

    You have probably seen photos of Sturmgeschutz Brigade 276 , they are known to have used FSJ helmets at the order of their commander who obtained a supply for the unit , they preffered to wear them within the fighting compartment as they were easier to wear that a normal steel helmet !!

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.

    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I can see the advantages of using an FJ helmet in a tank or a StuG.

    The photo of Stug Brigade 276 was taken on 12/8/1944 and features a Sturmhaubitze and crew of the Brigade wearing the FSJ helmets , it can be found in the book Knight Gunner the Memoirs of RKT Alfred Regeniter !!
