First bought helmet - told it was SS French division... Need help

Article about: All the photos that I have ever seen relating to the Charlemagne Division have only ever shown a tri-colour shield on the ARM and either NO decals on the helmet or, at most an SS and swastik

    All the photos that I have ever seen relating to the Charlemagne Division have only ever shown a tri-colour shield on the ARM and either NO decals on the helmet or, at most an SS and swastika shield. But, if someone can produce a genuine period photo showing otherwise, I will gladly concede a point!

    I spent sometime today looking at pictures and films about this division and most of the helmets did not have any decals but a very few did mostly SS or some type of shield but could not really see any good details.

    Chris.

    I did a quick google search by just putting Charlemagne Division and came up with loads of hits. I did find one site that had loads of photos, copies of posters etc relating to the division and, on checking very carefully, NOT one showed a tri-colour helmet shield on the right side.
    The only helmet markings, if any were the normal SS runes shield and/or the black on red swastika shield. This also tallies in with all the other pic's that I have seen and the fact that the only place that a tri-colour shield APPEARS to have been worn was on the arm.
