    More images without the cover please, it will be a "Quist" made shell, if a "Zweiteilige" (two piece) M56 modal helmet it would be out of circulation when the helmet net with clips was around/issued, the net for this helmet is a large heavy gauge net (almost like the U.S. style) with a veil, it was held in place by the inner fibre liner helmet (again as the U.S. style) this net is VERY rare indeed and is an expensive item to buy !!....also the helmet cover would be one made up from the cammo "splittertarn" tunic hood. For more information on the M56 BW Stahlhelm see here... The Holy Grail...an M56 "Zweiteilige" steel helmet.
    For a period substitute you could use a BGS type helmet net........heres some images of the M56 with splittertarn cover, the correct net and the BGS style that you could use.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Nice image nice to see a wooden stocked UZI in use ! despite no rank shown on image it is probably of a squad leader as they were usually issued with this type of weapon, the G3 being the main infantry weapon in a squad.......
    Prost ! Steve.

    Thanks James... I'm sure you'll find a nice example given the fullness of time!!
    my advice would be to keep scouring the M1 army helmet generic type listings on the bay and suchlike.... as both mine were found incorrectly listed there!!!
    of course you can go looking on German eBay for the M56 specifically... but the final price on those seem to soar of late!!!!
