Default Para helmet picture

Hello,


Yes Akira => you hit the nail on the head !!!

The picture does show glider pilots (withthe FJ helmets) during there ground training mid 1941. The person in the middle with the camo helmet is a personal friend and he made it towards Leutnant at the end of the war !!!

Lets see in my humble archive iff i can find some more


Cordial greetings,

Hello,


Here is another one (again from a glider pilot) => " a shot to impress the girls with " as the former glider pilot does mention it


Cordial greetings,

Hi Eric, interesting pic, my first reaction was R.A.D , but could it be SA 'Feldherrenhalle' as I know they had a small parachute trained section that was folded into variuos Fallschirmjager units at both the begining and late war when replacement troops were needed.


Cheers,

Paul Marsh
