Picked up this M1 liner a while ago, pretty rare to come across when you live in the Netherlands. Barely see any American militaria over here. So I got really lucky when I picked this one up. Seems to me to be a liner built inbetween 1943 and 1945. At least, thats what I read on the internet on when the liners from Mining Safety Appliances were made. Other than a few straps here and there missing, it seems to be good.
There also seem to be initials inside, maybe I could find more out about the previous owner with the help of you guys. Here are the initials
From what I can make out of it, it says:
V Erven W
So my questions are;
Is it original? Though I'm 99% sure it is, I'm not a real expert on originality.
Can anyone track down the army number to find out more information on mr Erven?
