Germans used Dummy Heads – Images of German Dummy Heads.
Mentioned in the diary of 9 Battalion Royal Irish Fusiliers. 26th August 1916. Page Link: https://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/subjects/AWD0003ers
PS An article regarding ‘Wooden soldiers: A sketch shows how the British army devised a system of using dummies to fool the enemy’ was posted in The Mess Hall Board / First World War Jargon. Four months ago. These are images of the German Dummy Heads.

This article http://www.iwm.org.uk/history/5-facts-about-camouflage-in-the-first-world-war from the Imperial War Museum has an interesting photo of a workshop where dummy heads were made.
And I noticed on the diary page that the 9th R.I.F. were not deceived by the dummies!
