    anyone?
    If you check out world-war-helmets.com, and check out the US section, I believe they show the various nets in use,which might give you some ideas,but I normally, just sandwich the net,between the shell and liner,you might have to cut your net down a bit,as there aint much room ,between the liner and the shell,to squeeze the net in

    Nice one Mate.

    That's a real salty Aussie M1, I'm not really sure what the exchange rate is, $ vs , but it's a good 'un.

    I like this one
    its about 62 which to me is a bit high for a helmet like that & in that condition but thats just my opinion

    I'm with NickD, as I think it was a bit much as he says.
    But enjoy it for what it is.

    You are well on your way to the next one !




    My stepson picked up this helmet a few years ago for $10 CDN.

    here are the pics, hope it helps.
    hey guys, i think this helmet liner is a paratrooper liner. i've recently seen a vietnam war paratrooper helmet, and the liner is near the same as the guy's one, it has the same interior colour, and even has the same writing on the webbing, i manage to read what it said on mine and it is "Liner Soldiers Steel Helmet, combat type 1" but i cannot translate the smaller numbers and letters, as seen on the pictures.
