    The British introduced a tinfoil liner inside the sun helmet in c1942-43, which fits with the date of your slouch -here's one from my collection-. A mate has one of these slouch hats, British made, it has no foil lining , but sadly I can't remember the date it was made.

    Great to see the reposted pics mate. An interesting example and not typical, 5 vents, the zig zag liner mount and the tinfoil dome liner are not seen often on these, bloody nice example and I would have it in shot if you ever want to part with it.

    I remembered seeing one by this maker, 5 vents, the same zig zag liner mount but it has had its liner foil removed, or at least most of it has been with just a few traces remaining, a 44 dated example and a 45 dated example all the same except with no trace of the foil, though of course any traces of it might not have been visible in the pictures. So perhaps not that uncommon after all.
    Regards,
