Great to see some Aussie stuff here, & some pictures that I have'nt seen before
Hate to direct anyone away from this forum, but check this thread for NZ used nets and covers:
Militarianz • View topic - Show us your helmet covers!

heres my netted helmet,the net looks the same as the one Rene posted
Looks like the ones made by M.B. Wragg & Co Gardenvale Vic'
Unfortunately this ones not mine but a friends, a MkI* with a 37 dated liner. Malta camo' with painted over flash on the side with an early woven net.
Here's an official photo of the Sicily landings in July 1943 which shows beach master Lieut' H. Seeley with an early type net.
Here's an army Mk2, shell made by F&L dated 1940, liner by J.C.S.& W Ltd & also dated 1940 with what looks like an Dobson & M Browne & Co Ltd net.
Not strictly a helmet net but any excuse to show a fibre rim HSAT then I think it's worth it.
