    Great 826 there James ! as Gregg states German, the companies of INDUCYO and SCHUBERTH being the BW contractors of choice for their Gefechtshelms ..............What a variety of covers you have ! ...........I must get myself another 826 for my UN cover !
    Quite common to find "para cord" or boot lace threaded around the flecktarn and wusterntarn helmet covers for holding extra cammo items, such as scrim/foliage etc.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Getting the liner out is easy enough, its getting it back in again that is somewhat testing. To be honest I'm really good at taking helmets apart, but useless at putting them together again. I am fortunate in that I can hand that over to Catherine, my partner, who is much more adept than I (she fixes the car, works with computer hardware, does a bit of plumbing...she just has a supernatural way of seeing the relationship between what to me has become a heap of dissociated parts...) But that being said, the 826 really is a bit fiddly to reassemble. Fortunately you almost certainly will not need to do it except out of idle curiosity (my downfall). The variants can usually be identified without the aid of a screwdriver - see here for some hints - composite helmets index .
    Thanks for the hints and tips and the link Greg. I am sure this will come in handy. I hope I will not have to disassemble the liner,but I get frustrated if I can not correctly identify an item, and the picture provided of my recent purchase on ebay does not clearly show a label like the German model, so I suspect it might be a Belgium model ?, but of course until it arrives I will not know one way or the other...ahggh the frustrations of buying on- line, but that is another frustration I have which can only be solved by the postie getting him/herself motivated

    One thing for sure, I will be referring to the link provided,kind regards.

    Thanks for the advice James, my helmet arrived today and having had a cursory look at it, I think I will leave dissembling the liner from the shell until I am more focussed and awake,but think it is held in place by three bolts, as I suspected there are no obvious labels to aid my identification, but after looking at Greg's most informative site, I am 99% certain mine is not German, Belgian,etc but a Induyco made Dutch M95 NL...but of course until I get the liner out I can't be 100% sure,but the clues are there.

    You know what's typical I have both B826 Flecktarn and Tropperntarn covers , a Belgian B826 Jigsaw pattern cover, but no Dutch M95 covers......ebay I am relying on you now!!!!

    Regards Opex.

    finally got round to picking up one of these dutch woodland helmet covers and also a rather worn 1990 dated m53 cover too ,all in all probably one of the better fitting covers for the 826 perhaps due to the moulded rubber rimClick image for larger version.
