Same for the RAF life vest…I've often wondered about this shot, as the helmet is some kind of civilian pre-war one without radio receivers. This movie used A-11 helmets and US goggles, nothing like this is to be seen anywhere in the movie.
So, where'd it come from? I'd bet that when they were taking this shot, they wanted someone on his head but couldn't find what they needed right away, so someone had this sitting around?
The uniform jacket and pants and boots look Luftwaffe WWII… the rest… movie… but a very well made and historically correct movie…unlike the „Bollywood „ crap festival shown recently.
