Dutch helmets used by the Romanian Armed Forces


Between 1938 and 1943, approximately 800,000 model m38 helmets were delivered to the Romanian Armed Forces. Until 1941, the helmets were delivered with a Romanian creast at the front and from 1941 the helmets were delivered without the creast. In addition to the regular delivery of Verblifa, a limited number of captured Dutch helmets were also delivered to the Romanian armed forces.


The Romanian m38 is also called the Casca de Otal, model Olandez.
