    Anyone have any more info on this? Seems odd that the American prisoners are still wearing their helmets.

    The generally accepted rule of war was that POWs whilst still in the combat zone must be allowed to retain their helmets. Western Allied practice, established by the British at the Somme in 1916 but carried on into WW2, was to remove the helmets as soon as they were taken to the rear. However there is plenty of photographic evidence to show that in both wars the Germans were far less concerned about this with British and French POWs still helmeted whilst well in the rear. I guess the Italians followed the lead of their Axis allies.
