Most of the helmets worn by the German army troops have decals on their sides (national colors on one side, Army insignia on the other). However, the German army stopped using helmet decals in 1942 or 1943. By the time of the Remagen battle in March of 1945, few, if any, German helmets with these insignia would still be in use.
