Hi Brig.
Nice Helmet. 8) yes that is a good example of "broken" Cam. There is no hard and fast rule but anything to break from solid white is useful. Only in the barren arctic have I used all white. And that was to hunt seals with the local inuit.
In the woods in winter, our lower body gets white cam 'cause we're walking thru snow. Our upper bodies are uncammed in solid green to blend with the trunks and lower branches. By this I mean tall trees. If you were to look into a tall pine forest in winter you would understand what this would make an erect soldier look like.

Terribly sorry, old bean, but I'm still not quite following you. :oops: Do you refer to those small scrub pine? There were some tall tree forests all over Russia too, you know.
good talking to ya
Regards
A :)

8O DAMN! I'm starting to hate that white stuff

Yeah, I know the SS tended to swirl black in with the whitewash of their helmets at times. This helmet I posted is blue over the apple green. Very weird :?

I met a Geman tanker back in 86 who said it best, "It gets very cold in Siberia"
