    Ade,

    I was finally able to visit my friend the helmet collector to show him the photo of your Ssh-36 helmet liner.

    He told me he had that a helmet with that same liner model some years ago, unfortunately not anymore, as he thinned his russian helmet collection some time ago. Anyway, he told me his helmet had, to his knowledge, a russian liner, not a spanish one. He has no information to backup his claim, other than the helmet he had (with that liner) was brand new, seemed not to have had combat use, so he assumed it came like that - untouched - from the USSR.

    It is not much, but I hope it helps.



    Regards,

    Gus

    Dimas,

    As I said in my post, I think this visit to my old friend has not shed any light as to the true origin of the liner, as it might well be that the helmet looked like new precisely because it was refurbished in Spain, not necessarily because it came like that from the USSR.


    Regards,
