    hey guys, i just got my helmet i told you i was getting earlier, its Australian issued, it cost me 110$ AUS and it came with liner plus steel pot, ill post the photos of it up, to see if i got my money's worth, and also to see what war it was in cause i am still new at identifying which war it was from. thank you!

    ps. the camo thing on my bench is the camo net it came with(it is the standard issue camo net given with the helmet: according to the guy that sold it to me) and i would like some help on how to put it on the helmet.

    oh and thank you for all the help with my liner. i felt real happy when you guys said it was real and that it is a good collecter's item
