    Default Bad condition relic KM helmets

    Hello people. They were found here in Croatia by diggers who are searching for fallen soliders. Strangely, all they take is bones and dog tags, but they leave all the equipment and weapons. They took the dog tags, they were KM. They were bombed by partisans with the 150mm or 155mm british cannons/mortars (not sure with what). All of them were killed on the position. Those are their helmets, they still had them on.


    1. M35 probably DD + red camo?

    Hi, did you manage to get some of the weapons? What will happen to remains of the fallen German Soldiers??
    Can you verify the authenticity of the claimed information, Km and all?
    Nice finds.
    Cheers

    Too bad about the condition, but interesting helmets nonetheless since you know where they came from.

    I'm sure you can set up a nice display with them.

    The soliders will be burried on the local military cementary or if they are identificated they will be brought home, i dont know how it goes.
    They didnt have any weapons since they have probably been taken by the partisans. I also have one mortar tail that fell on them.

    Here, i belive it was yellow or white judging by the pins. You can also see 2 shades of green, and the misterious paint.
