Response to Comparison to KNIL Helmets


Hi Sybren, thanks for your posts. Though I cannot really help, please visit, where you will find several surviving examples of KNIL vehicles. The most researched ones are the Ford GP jeep of mr Geesink and the Vickers Utility tractor at Bronbeek. Other pics of surviving Braat overvalwagens suggest indeed a lighter green/olive colour, but we dont know if these vehicles have their original 1941/42 colour. They could have been repainted post 1945 by the Dutch with newly supplied paint from allied stocks or post 1950 by the museums with paint from the Ind army.
Kind regards,
