Helmet Description

Members of the State Police Groups (Landespolizei) utilized a combination of German and Austrian World War I pattern helmets as well as light weight helmets.  These helmets were typically finished in a satin field green color bearing two insignia.  The evolution of the insignia took place over several years patterned after the Prussian State Police Group "General Göring."  Insignia took the form of a white mobile swastika and the national colors of Germany.
