    Hi geelong you have a Hawley liner unless you can find a letter G ink stamp but it is a model that was manufactured late 1942 before the composite models took over. If it were an earlier model it would have the white rayon suspension with rectangular steel washers. The leather chin strap is also detachable which wasn't possible on the first models and also the leather headband is the crocodile clip type rather than the snap in headband of early models. Very nice and pretty rare liner thanks for showing .

    Hi geelong this is what you need to look for on a Genral Fibre liners and they are super rare as only 120,000 were made compared to 3,997,000 Hawley liners.
