    Hello-short side is the front, long 'duck tail' is the rear-intended to give protection to the back of the neck but tends to dig in to the back when in the prone position.

    Hi,
    Also where the rim is fitted around the helmet, the join is normally to the rear. Sometimes also where the helmet is dated & the makers name is stamped, is also in the rear. The MkIII, the liner is fitted with a nut & bolt, also the chin strap securing lugs are fitted by a rivet that is about 2 1/4 from the rim. The MkIV, the liner is fixed by a rivet, plus also the rivet that fixes the chin strap securing lugs is closer to the rim.
