Major Liebach, the commanding officer of FJR 6 in Italy, congratulates Feldwebel Rudolf Harbig, the world record holder in the 400m and 800m sprint, for his achievements in an athletic competition held in the 2 FJD.
M38 Fallschirmjager Springhelm painted in the FJR6 “Normandy camouflage” as well as texture made of dirt and saw dust. This is the typical camouflage for the Fallschirmjager Regiment 6 in Normandy. Front view.
A battle damaged M38 found near Carentan after the Fallschirmjager’s were ran out of the town by the 101st Airborne. Two things that make this helmet amazing, 1 it is an early version as can be deduced by the bolts holding the helmet liner in, and the fact the wearer was not injured other than a bump and a bad headache. Most of the FJs in Carentan had camouflage painted on their helmets consisting of yellow/green pattern, textured with dirt and fine wood chips.
