    Thanks Sleepwalker, that's a lot of interesting information. I got it from a surplus dealer who bought a lot of stuff from the NZ Army, they did use M1 helmets between 1960 to 2000. But I like your idea of converting it into "Vietnam spec", I do happen to have one of these...

    This is the guy I’ve used for chinstraps and have not been disappointed.
    The cover you have will work really well.

    Cheers for the link Marty, I bought a M51 strap off him to restore my late model M51 helmet (need the chin strap metal size slider) just waiting on it.
