Wouldn't it have been the "Groen Politie" doing this type of work?
the soldier on the right , besides his helmet looks like it is plastic , it has no wermacht decal?
Not necessarily, Crazy Horse... He's wearin an m42 and it wasn't uncommon for them to have no decals...
Its not raining. thats whats wrong. It should be bloody pouring in Holland in spring..at least every time I visit there it is....
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!
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?
