I ask your kind opinion on my helmet M1 with friezes Red Cross. The shell is a front seam, fixed bail, lot nr. 112A that, for a McCord, dates back to March 1942. The exterior features four friezes of the Red Cross edged in black with a diameter of about 6 cm (smaller than usual to make it harder to detect by the enemy?).
The liner is branded "Inland 49" fiber, with rayon headband type Hawley (transitional?) And on a piece of hemp is written the number B-48621. A-steel washers of the first type. Chinstrap liner and headband with bushes "United Carr". I found any picture on the web, dated October 6, 1944, entitled: "A US medic tends Germans on the Italian front". Giovanni
