About The German Pith Helmet:
The “pith helmet” (also known as the sun helmet, safari helmet, topee, sola topee, salacot or topia) is a lightweight cloth-covered helmet made of cork or pith (pith is a pressed dried white plant matter). The pith helmet was designed to shade the wearers’ head from the hot sun, pith helmets were often worn by European in the tropics/desserts.
The German Afrika Korps pith helmet had ventilation holes in the crown (the top part of the helmet), had 2 metal shields; one on the right and one on the left of the helmet, and was khaki in color. The right shield had the German national colors (black, white, red) and the left shield had the German eagle with a swastika.
