    Hi Andy, It's Canadian, I think the yanks used them as well as the British ones.

    Forgot to say, I have one the same. You can see how much work goes into one of these nets.

    Thanks tinlid.
    Well these nets are turning out to be a whole sub division of helmet collecting! They are confusing to say the least, with all the post war types circulating too.
    There does seem to have been a lot of effort put into producing something as disposable as a helmet net with this type.
    This particular example came from a seller in Australia, he's selling them as jungle camo nets. I emailed the seller and he explained that they came from a military case. :-)
    Well as they are Canadian (and wartime production I take it,) the price was reasonable.
    So it would be entirely possible for this type of net to be the one in the picture I suspect.

    I also got mine from Oz, same seller. The description was wrong but it's still a WW2 Canadian net.
    I think your pretty well ok with a woven net as being WW2 it's the knotted type that can be hard to tell as the British made them into the 50's as well.
    When the British Mk3 came out in 43 into 44 they started making the nets bigger as the Mk3 was bigger by 12% from horizontal missiles, 15% against vertical missiles & 11% bigger against Vulnerable areas.
    The early British woven nets do fit the Mk3 but is a bit of a job getting it on, the first knotted nets are about 16" x 16" & are probably all WW2, the later knotted nets 18" x 18" which must have come out in 43/44 could be WW2 or post war, impossible to tell the difference.
    Here's another WW2 pic of a Canadian net being worn on the M1.

    Well I had to try it out.
    It went on very easily, though I did wet it first. The results look quite good I think.
