BUNCH OF ITALIAN PITH HELMETS

A rare picture of Italian piths showing the inside.
"A British soldier picking himself out a topee from among the many that have been left behind by the Italians"
Do you think the interiors are all green? Consider the two encircled ones receiving the same light. The darker one is green, maybe the other is khaki?

Re: BUNCH OF ITALIAN PITH HELMETS

Ciao
as you already know unfortunately I don't think there were kaki helmet in WWII.
You can see in the pic two different shadow of color because there is a different incidence of the sun's rays on helmets. At about 90° the helmet becomes very light.
You can see at the red arrows two different color in the same helmet and that was not possible, all kaki or all green; besides at the green arrow you can see two different shadow of color in the side flap of the same helmet.
I am sorry but I have never seen a WWII helmet with a kaki inside.
Also I am sorry of this fact because I have a Kaki pith helmet too.
