    Default My stenciled WW2 m1 liner

    I've talked about this various times, but had never gotten around to posting images. It's not the taking of the pictures, it is the task of uploading that usually stalls me.

    Anyways, I will spare the history of it (that is in the "what was your first helmet" topic) and just post the pictures. It is a mid-war seaman paper co. liner. I was wondering is anyone knows what the stenciling on the back means.

    As you can see in the first picture, the rivets of the nape-straps are still attached (broken from the strap itself).

    Looks like the headband is installed in the liner to high. You need to drop it down to the bottom so it is attached to suspension.


    Check out Top Pots for info on how the liner webbing should look.

    WWII Nape Straps can be found relatively easy on EBay:

    You'll want to pickup the non-adjustable (1-peice) version.

    Very nice setup, by the way!

    Makes sense as I guess it depends on the wearer and what was comfortable to them.

    To add, do a google search of "Navy Number Stencil Helmet" and you'll find a few examples of stenciling similar to yours.
