    Hi Mo, Pete is correct, it is Spanish.

    They are quite similar,but the Spanish one has 7 rivets holding the liner in,while the German only has 3. Here is a pic of a Spanish one trying to look German.

    Defo Spanish M42/79, the chinstrap would have been almost identical to an M1 airborne VN model.
