Cam M40.....unusual

Article about: Has anyone seen a cam job like this before? 1944 Italian campaign. These photos belong to a friend who is offerning me this helmet. These give a good idea of the paint and cam, the Decal loo

    The first one looks less like camoflage and more like someone trying to stand out in a crowd!

    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    That first one surely is one that would get you shot wearing it as the point of camouflage is to blend in and/or break up the outline of what the human eye expects to see.

    The second one looks like an ex winter whitewash and stands a good chance I think.
