WWI Technical Reference Table
The sun pith is a dominant feature of European colonialism, endless photos or drawings of explorers, colonizers and
military have set the shape in our memory. The sun pith helmet was used to repair
the head and neck of pale Europeans from the rays of the tropical sun, did not secure any shelter from bullets
and very little even by the arms to cut. It was usually made of plant fibers, such as straw or cork and was covered
by a cotton fabric. Usually, for camouflage reasons, it was Khakhy color or light bronze.
The sun pith in World War I were used in Africa, Middle East and also on the Macedonian front.
