    Default Italian ww2 officer pith helmet

    Hi everyone. I'm glad to show you this pith helmet I have recently purchased. Privately purchased by an officer (from major to colonel) from a dealer of Port Said, Egypt. The pith helmet mounts the correct insignia of the 7th Mountain Troops (Alpini) Regiment and has also original anti-sand glasses. Due to the fact that 7th Alpini Regiment is the Regiment where I have served during my military service, this pith helmet is one piece of the history of my Regiment, so I like it very much. Enjoy the pictures:Click image for larger version.

    Nice item,
    it is a "Aden" pattern, a helmet model of British origin, widely used by Italian officers in the 30/40's
    Often these are private purchases from foreign suppliers, but they were also produced in Italy by the "Unione Militare" manufacturer.
