    Many thanks for for taking a look and the positive comments, I think your are quite right regarding the addiction I already have my eye on another. I have been told the chin strap is wrong for a fixed bale , is this a correct or were they issued with this type of strap.The stitching looks factory but iam very new to these helmets.

    That's good to know, I was starting to feel a bit shot down if it was a post war reissue. The guy Home / M-1 Helmets.co.uk gave me the info on it be an incorrect strap.
