There are other "under the hood" details not...

Great pic and thanks for posting it.

Great pics Bill! I think the Balkan pics are probably from Romania (based on the hats on the men and children).

Interesting story. It's strange that in neither link do they mention him being decorated by the Germans (except in the list of awards).

Was it in an auction?

I'm sorry, but in my honest opinion I think this is a reproduction.

Nope, enlarged the pic - definitely a Cool Ranch Dorito.

Seriously though - a great pic! Based on the light color of the trop overpaint and HG title I'd venture to say that's a LW helmet.

Just my opinion Dante, but based on the pics I'm not a big fan. I'm no expert on Soldbuchs, but I don't recall ever seeing one that was made out of card stock like this (Heer, LW, KM, or W-SS).

Possible transfer from the Army early in the war - perhaps a Weserübung jumper??
