    Default First pattern high pressure westinghouse liner.

    Finally got a First Pattern Micarta Westinghouse Rayon Liner,produced between may 1942-september 1942,missing the Nape,but overall condition for 70 years young is outstanding,original smooth dark olive drab paint,will be displayed on its own merit as this is where it all started for the maker of probably the greatest M1 Helmet Liner the Micarta division of Westinghouse,hope you guys like it as I think its pretty special............

    Cheers Gary for such a great comment,the misses just shakes her head and well you know how it is Bud.as your aware these items ain't cheap so I have to make them count when it really matters,these are the first items i've purchased since my late war salty Helmet was shown some 6 plus weeks ago,however its crunch time for me now,if I cannot make the transition over to a low pressure or Hawley then there has to be a cutting off point,dont you think mate,I have nearly all types of High pressure liners which are well documented here at WRF,thanks again........
    With Regards Jake.
