Regarding the earlier comment about German tankers putting their Stahlhelms out on the turret on the hope of losing them, it may be of interest that British Sherman commanders were also known to place a helmet and goggles on the turret by the hatch, but this was to draw sniper fire in order to locate where the danger was. It did work too as they would discover their helmets riddled with holes.
