I need some pictures of ww2 Italian soldiers wearing mod.33 helmets with the cammo net. Not the cammo cover, but the net!
I have never seen any ww2 pic with cammon net on mod.33s, but many with the cammo cover.
Somehow I start believe that the cammo net was only issued after ww2.

Anyone out there to proove me the opposite with some nice little pic?

Mhhhhhh... I know that the net were distributed only after the war.
There are some photos of parachuters of Nembo Btn in Anzio with net over their helmete, but those were nets taken from allies prisoners or dieds:

Hi Tank,
go to http://www.decima-mas.net and type "elmetti" in the search engine. You will come up with lots of M33s and the methods to camoflage them: paint, nets (sometimes captured ones) and "chicken mesh".

I agree with Barbarigo, I have only seen the nets postwar,. They did use a chord like system by looping several times through the airholes. I know the Italian S.S. were big into this form of fixing foliage to ones helmet.

From the above X Mas site:

Caption says: "Different camoflage methods. L to R: wire mesh, captured USA net and cord web".

Go to page 481 of my book ELMETTI/Helmets, ed Albertelli 2003,
and you'll find also a camo net worn on an M.33.

Only after WWII the Italian Army widely issued camo nettings
for steel helmets.
