Aus m1

Article about: this a Australian army used helmet. the liner is Australian made but the helmet shell is US. I can not with out force take the liner out as the aus liners had a very thick sand in the paint

    Maybe the 'Bulgarian contract' fell through?
    Or they made too many liners?

    Great posts and links guys.
    Got out my other two helmets to check the stamps:
    R over FB
    R over GB
    and R over LJ
    The 'LJ' is a much lighter shade of green although all three helmets seem to have the original paint.
    Could the letters be a date code?

    I have some images of two more Australian helmets both have the arrow stamp in the sweat band.. there numbers both CAT NO with a 50. the other liner has no,, cat no, stamp but the same numbers.

    We will get to the bottom of this eventually - with some more digging.
