Many thanks Ardito for your post.
Certainly I did not imagine that it was the same one used by Italian paratroopers in Kefalonia!

Here are three photos of paratroopers during their training before the launch on Kefalonia wearing the gray suit and M41 Paratrooper Helmet. The last pic depicts two Officers of Royal Carabinieri paratroopers in Africa.
