    Default FJ Helmet relic camo ?

    sorry to start this new/old thread but i need your advices
    i already post some pics of my new Fallschirmjager relic helmet , here it is now after my treatment :
    i just gently clean it with a soft cloth and i can see now some remains of the original paint, which appears to look like a camo , it is not so visible on the pics but much more visible with a darker daylight..
    am i crazy ?
    looks like a green and sand camo, is it the pattern of such camo in the Arnheim battle
    BTW liner is 61 and shell 71

    Thank you

    Certainly not from Arnhem , where was it recovered ?

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

    There were FJ units in the Market Garden Battle, but not in Arnhem itself. They fought against the Americans.

    Nice relic.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Wayne, not the same lid. Compare:

    I have asked Ken to replace pics and not to use hosting sites, as it has made a mockery of the thread.

    @ Glenn, if you look closely you can see some remains of the green paint and the yellowish paint, but like i said it is more obvious when you see it for real and with less light .
    my helmet don't comes from anyone else mention above

    do you think i have to go further to clean the helmet ? to see maybe more remains of original paint ? i'm a little bit scared
