CVC Helmets?
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Note the 'hats' these guys have on under their helmets. Are these some sort of tanker helmets? Also note their 1st AD patch over their pockets.

They look to be standard World War II type tanker helmets under their steel pots. The steel helmet was often used over the tanker helmet which acted like a helmet liner.

...and at least 4 of the 5 are wearing shoulder holsters. The guy on the right might also have one, slung from left to right, hard to be sure.

I'd guess either tankers, or TD guys.

they seem to wear both M1942 and M1943 HBT jackets, and HBT trousers.

Doug, Most of the photos in this series were of M46 tanks so they are probably off one of those. Smile

The series of photos was taken in January 1952.
