The "Afrika Korps" was the German military force deployed to Northern Africa in 1941. The infantry were issued the traditional European style sun helmet known as the "Tropische Kopfbedeckung." These helmets, also called "Pith Helmets," featured two metal sheilds on either side; the right containing the national colors of Germany, and the left displaying the German eagle. This original pith helmet is quite rare, especially given its near flawless condition. The helmet also comes with the accompanying tinted leather dust goggles.
