    Re the Free Indian Legion, no, if you refer to one the same as the arm sheild. This decal is a fantasy item made in the 1990's.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sauerland is in the south eastern part of North Rhine Westphalia and a part of Germany proper. To correct the erronious statement from young Kyle, they were not a foreign volunteer unit. The decal did exist and is extremely rare. There are many fakes of this elusive helmet. I actually handled an original example when I was a freshman in high school way back in 1959. It was in a junk store in Chicago along with a Luftwaffe helmet with a painted on Bellorussian volunteer shield. Both were $5.00. I bought the Luftwaffe helmet and told the store owner I would be back in a week for the Sauerland helmet. I came back but the helmet was gone.

    Bob, is that the only one you are aware of? I've searched in different forums n came up with nothing. If it had not been for period pics I wouldnt have believed it existed.

    If you are referring to the Sauerland helmet, that was the only one I have ever seen that i know is authentic. the guy got two helmets from the same vet and both really rare and unusual ones. in 1959, no one would have even known what a Sauerland helmet was. What fake decals that were around were very basic SS ones and made similar in construction to those found in plastic model kits.
