    Just got a new camera, so thought I would take out some of my camos and give them some air!

    It makes you wonder what that soldier was trying to blend in to.

    From a distance the lines look like little tree branches with an Autumn sky behind them. It's a very cool Camo pattern and someone had some time on their hands.

    Here are some frames from the German film on the invasion of Norway in 1940, entitled "Kampf um Norwegen". I recently discovered that soldiers were wearing helmets with the same concrete pattern. This helmet comes from Norway, and there are at least three others like it in Norwegian collections. I have inserted a black and white photo of my helmet in the same aspect for comparison in the second photo.

    I might add that the helmet was sprayed AFTER the concrete was applied. I believe these period photos show helmets with concrete without spray paint, as they look uniformly dark. Bill Shea had a Luftwaffe lid similar to these for sale recently on his site (unpainted concrete/sand strips over factory shell), although it has a pattern more similar to my KM sand camo.
