    Default DAK M40 cammo helmet in a local museum.

    I thought I would show this gem, it is on show in the Bandiana Ordnance (Army) Museum, which is situated just out of
    Wodonga in Victoria (near the border with NSW).

    The color of helmet is correct. This specific color is darker and referred to as Tan 79. This color was used to camouflage the Luftwaffe fighters serving in the North Afrikan theatre and in the Mediterranean. Leftover paint was commonly used to camo helmets (even though the Oberkommando Der Wehrmacht generally discouraged this in the early war theatres, such as North Afrika. That Brit helmet sure saw it's better days. If you compare Tan 79 and the ordnance tan they look similar, but further inspection reveals they are two different colors.
