    Hi guys,

    Does anyone know of any period photos of Navy grey-painted M1 helmets in use? I ask because I want to know what would be a good appropriate uniform to go along with one.

    This is the kind of helmet that I am talking about:

    I can say from my days in the Navy that we wore Dungaree bell bottom pants and a light blue shirt with our rank ironed on the sleeve. If it was cold we would wear a green foul weather jacket ( looked like a thick Ike jacket with material like a field jacket). We wore these helmets when we went to General Quarters. There was no special uniform, just whatever we were wearing at the time GQ was sounded.
