Nice to see a no BS camo for once! It's becoming a rarer occurrence.

Normandy Camo is a perfectly acceptable term for this helmet. Erroneous, yes. But any collector will understand what you're talking about. I find it far more disturbing when collectors, even experienced ones, think Normandy camos must have come from Normandy.

He got the helmet from Limburg in Belgium , so I think Normandy is acceptable here . Rob

Quite right. Some call this type camo a Three Color" to avoid this very argument. Same with Tan Helmets not all are DAK so "Tropical" or "Tan" is proper.
