Helmet of the Organisation X [XH44]

The Organization X commonly referred as X ("Chi" in Greek), and the members as  Chites was a notorious paramilitary militia of the extreme right set up during the Axis occupation of Greece, in June 1941. Ιn March 1943 adopted George's II royal monogram of two crossed gammas which resembled the Greek alphabet chi-X. X was pure anti-communist and its resistance action included spying for the Allies, minor anti-German actions against the transport superstructures of the Axis to the Middle East but its relations to the occupying Axis powers were ambivalent. The organisation was tolerated and possibly armed by the Germans, and even before the German departure fortified a base near the ancient temple of Thiseion. Towards the end of the Occupation, X received arms from British sources with which its members fought in the Dekemvriana clashes of December 1944 side by side with the British army. X was heavily involved in the persecution of non-monarchists during and after the occupation and considered communism to be its principal or even sole enemy. The Khaki Depot X helmet is an Italian origin m33 (after the Italian capitulation in September 1943, large number of the Italian army materials passed into the hands of various organizations in Athens and province) repainted in cyan with a large red crown and two crossed gammas.
