    Default feuerwehr hitlerjugend helmet

    Hello,
    half a year a go I bought this helmet from a friend of a good friend. Before my purchase I did a little research, including this forum. Especially the chinstrap was worrying me, untill I read that this kind of closure of the chinstrap was already licensed in 1926. Some doubts about the tricolor, but I decided to buy it. So now that I registered to this forum recently, I would like to use your collective wissdom to know your opinion.....No manufacturer found in the helmet. Thanks in advance !

    Probably a helmet decal none of us have ever seen in person.

    There are a few threads on this forum but the only photos I've seen are period photos or old B&W photos from old books.

    That said, I do have concerns as graphically your HJ decal does not match up with what is presented as original in what appears to be the book: "Defending the Reich" by David Littlejohn

    Evidence of HJ decal use?

    another fake HJ helmet ?

    Well, during my research I have seen a few HJ decals, and I must admit that I don't know which one is the 'real' one. If there is a 'real' one, because I understood that the HJ decal was not an official decal on helmets...

    Correct me if I am wrong, because I am the last one to doubt on what most people with much more years of experience have to say...

    We know they existed based on the period photos. See post 16 in my 2nd link above.

    But I have never seen a surviving example. Maybe others here have.

    Yes, I saw this picture before. Mine is lacking the white outer line of the figure within the shield.

    I mailed a question to a seller of reproduction decals (according to him an accurate reproduction) thats sells a decal for hitler jugend helmets exactly like mine.....(I hope if the decal is a fake reproduction, the one that 'faked' the helmet did not buy it to him...)
    i asked him on what information he based the idea that this was an exact reproduction of a HJ decal. He mentioned a book written by Angolia.
    Anyone has this book in his posession and what does it say about decals on German helmets ? Thanks in advance !
