    Wouldn't it have been the "Groen Politie" doing this type of work?

    thats true, was taking a shot in the dark, though some soldats did purchase decals on their own.

    Lots of things for sure - but what really struck me was the white "border" around the tri-colour!

    Yeah, basically, what I think is wrong with the picture is the nice newly issued M35 with a Tri-colour decal with a white border around it. The movie is set in 1945 for gods sake and as you know the tri-colour was discontinued as factory issue after early 1940! You would think that the researchers would have sorted out the historical accuracies before they blew the budget on cheap repro helmets!

    Yes, but rules were often broken and I'm sure we could find late war pics with DD helmets in them, well mostly sure!

    Also, its called suspension of disbelief, where accuracy is not as important as visual impact and most movie goers wont know its wrong, but expect to see thier nazis with decals on thier helmets.

    Great quiz Jim and also I'm sure that guy has got trainers on?

    You are probably right about the helmets Jerry, be good to see a bona fide 1945 shot of a double decal though. I was only going on what was most common. I know what you mean about the accuracy thing too. Didn't see any misplaced decals in Band of Brothers though . And those trainers are Nike Air TR, Limited Edition
