Article about: Here's a M16 camo, produced by Hermann Weissenberger & Co. size 66. The liner is not so good as I wanted it to be, but I can live with it... Notice the left lug is still filled with dirt

    The lug was probably filled deliberately with dirt to keep the helmet from whistling in the wind. I collected these a while back in the 1980's and in process had several with filled lugs. It may be helmet lore, but according to what I learned, this was the reason.
