    Default vietnam era helmet liner

    here's a recent pickup and quite hard to find here in the uk ,this one is dated 1967 and i can confirm very warm to wear especially when out early on my mountain bike ,before you say it no i dont wear an m1 smash helmet ,i like the fact its specific to the m1 and even has chinstrap slots either side when folded up over the helmet Click image for larger version.

    cheers jake yes that denny net you sent sure does compliment the relic well,its my new favorite old lid so im going to make it a sticky i just need to convince the missus its really does suit the living room i dont know about the korean period liners regarding the chinstrap button holes ,ill do further research and if i find out anything ill let you know and many thanks timothy your revelation of your time in service ,i honestly didnt know ,perhaps your the best person to ask ,my nam lid is an m1c and im just wondering if this liner would still have been worn under the different chinstrap configuration ,thanks james

    Very nice James, 1967 vintage too. I have a 1980's M-81 woodland version of these Helmet liners, and have worn it through many a cold winter

    Yes I think so James however most airborne troopers I was in the field with wore standard infantry stuff unless on a jump exercise I think those could be worn by everybody from cooks, to para. At least was my observation. timothy

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
