    The liner sweatband is indeed green od, so its post war.
    Nick, in my opinion it does not seem that thick but the first thing i will do is post photos of it, when it arrives
    Thank for the reply mate.
    Cheers.

    I like it to Nuno
    When it comes you can tell us who the liner maker is, you never know it might be a rarer one.
    It looks like it has a brass “J” hook and mild steel buckle. I don’t know if that’s common or not.
    Well done
