    I wonder what dictated the use of the strichtarn helmet cover VS. nets or no nets, was it just time period or something else?
    I'd guess it's use would be dictated by operation type.

    In the spirit of keeping the thread ticking over I thought you'd like to see some DDR helmets in wear with nets on too!Attachment 1353346
    I love the expression of the guy top right. He looks totally ~~~~ off!
    Cheers for the shot, I haven't seen many pics of the NBC suit packed on the kit!

    Thanks Rene,
    You might like this one as well as it shows a DDR Volksarmee unit with their NBC kit in wear.

    Hi,
    Sorry about my posting #24. I just wanted to inform our colleague member that there was already information available on this helmet on the forum.
    Deep regret and apologize. Asking for forgiveness.

    Great pic.
    My first thought was of "Dads Army" based on the apparent average age of these blokes but of course this is a Kampfgruppe unit and I think if you look hard and squint a bit you can just see a KG patch on the left arm of the bloke at bottom 2nd left with his head down over his notes/map.
    I reckon the Skimutze at bottom left will be the instructor/permanent staff charged with making sure that nobody is ordering a "take away curry"
