Nothing has been reversed, this is original image presenting german troops entrance to Belgium in 1940.Y
es it is true I think I've made a small mistake as for stahlhelm version.
But I am still thinking about this M16 .

Note the Cheveron on the right sleeve indicating he is a veteran of the First World War.

Rash,
The negative/print HAS BEEN reversed.... there is NO CHEVRON for WW 1 service in the Wehrmacht (the SS had an "Alte Kampfer" chevron worn on the right sleeve but that had nothing to do with WW 1 service either!)...... the helmet is either an M35 or M40, certainly not a M16/18 "Coal schuttle" WW 1 helmet.... look closely and you can see the breast eagles are on the wrong side, as Mustareata costel stated.

Hello all :

Either the photo has been reversed, or all of these German soldiers have been issued with uniform jackets
that have the buttons on the wrong side........
