German WWII Afrikakorps Sun Helmet with Metal Badges
New Made Item: On first deployment to North Africa in 1941, Afrikakorps infantry were issued with the traditional European sun helmet known as Tropische Kopfbedeckung, of the type known to the British forces as the solar topi (or topee). In the German case, these were made of pith, had prominent ventilation holes in the crown, were khaki in color and bore two metal shields; on the right the national colors and on the left the German eagle.
IMA has replicated an original German WW2 DAK pith helmet to exacting detail and we have even replicated authentic metal shields (badges) that have the correct period weight, finish and feel. Every helmet has a cleverly adjustable liner to fit sizes US 7 (56cm) up to US 8 (64cm). This is the very finest reproduction offered on the market today at a price you can afford. So finish off your Afrikakorps display or perhaps it is just perfect for outdoor activities like gardening or a long walk on the beach?!
