    When collecting Red Army militaria first expanded after 1992, the present wisdom was yes it was. However in the last decade or so, collectors (especially those is Russia) have challenged this and dispute that this liner was ever used by the Soviet military. If that is the case, then they are another mystery

    i've heard that such liners and chin straps were installed and used during the Spanish Civil War, although Clawson's book attributes them as 1st pattern Soviet originals... as of now, no firm proof of either theory exists.

    I regard them as Spanish liners.

    I was offered one of these from a friend. In the end I passed on it. Thread in here somewhere on the forum.

    Cheers, Ade.
