Painted helmets

I’ve started to look through wartime pictures for painted helmets and I’ve found a few.

Theres a good collection of pictures on MosinNagant.net also.

The most famous painted helmets are those with the “skull” type markings, they seem to have been used by the Kev. Os. 4 light detachment and possibly by the Uusimaa cavalry regiment.

A good overview of helmets in finnsh use: Pottia.net
