    ?????? Are you saying that there were two styles of helmets designated m38, the gladiator and the FJ, I would'nt think the German Authorities would create that type of confusion,it does'nt sound right!!!!

    D'oh, I didn't notice you said it was originally green. Doug is right of course, SA are brown so chances are slim it ever was.

    thanks for all the information Guys, I am grateful for all the knowledge everyone has. !! Why is it not marked at all , as per size etc as combat helmets are. I perhaps should not have used the word green , rather olive color also.
