    Default M35 LW DD Camo, Battle of Bulge?

    Hello, just doing some research out of curiosity. Came across this helmet posted on another forum. The Liner has a inscription on it. it reads "killed Dec 16, 1944" making it the first day of the Battle of the Bulge. My question is, the Battle of Lanzerath Ridge was mostly German Paratroopers, at least to my understanding. is there any way of Identifying or even validating what area this Helmet would have possibly came from? It leads towards it being a Ardennes collected Helmet. It seems to good to be true, but it also has me very curious. Any thoughts welcome.

    Why is the date of Aug1944 written in English if it a Germans helmet and he was not killed until Dec 1944? The hand writing is not same.

    Looks like it may have been taken in Rennes,
    and then a kid got hold of it.........

    And added the "killed Dec 16 1944" you mean? I'll admit it has me puzzled.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    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

    Thanks for the info on that battle Paul.

    As for the tri color decal, yes, it was supposedly revealed post war.

    I think it's safe to say the "story" on the liner is too good to be true
