Afrika-Korps, German Tropical Helmet : My collection (3)

My German Tropical Helmet, worn by the members of the Afrika-Korps in 1941 onwards. Second type, the first one, used at the beginning of the DAK’s epic, was in olive-green color.

 This kind of German Pith Helmet, dating from fall 1942 (I used to own two of those) was never issued to the Afrika-Kämpfer, a mistake often seen in museums or in private collections.
