    Default Chinstrap Loop

    Every so often, there are helmets that shows up here with a particular kind of non issue steel pot chinstrap buckle. I've come across this that shows what looks like that particular buckle and the original strap it was issued on. So perhaps the helmets seen here occasionally have been field repaired using this particular item?
    Is this the source of the mystery loop?

    I've seen plenty of questions about these on different forums and never found an answer. I hope this is it finally........................................... .........
    Depot/field repair possibly?
