Polish Paratroopers

While doing some research into the various helmets in my collection, I ran across some more information on the Polish Paratroopers that wore my Polish-East German Paratrooper Helmet, and some great photos.

The photos are of the Polish Paratroopers in action from the 70's through 1991, Excellent pictures! The color picture on the magazine article scan is from a Soldier of Fortune article that ran in 1991. I have the whole article if anyone is interested......... The unit that they were visiting and reporting on was the Polish 6th Pomeranian Airborne Assault Brigade. It would seem that these helmets were still being worn into the early 1990's by Polish airborne troops...... very interesting.
