    Hi nick,
    Nice helmet the shell looks like a late war rear seam swival bale
    going by the sown on straps and they are khaki. but the liner i think is an early Nam issue, if the shell was a reissue to Vietnam
    it would have the metal fixings to the strap hangers. i think the shell is a good buy.

    hi Nick,
    Yeah i would be shocked as well i cant believe you just put his name in and out it came, wow. i wish all the helmets were named then it would be a lot easier to research, i have only one named helmet out of seventeen of them and thats because it was grave dug ( russian) i envy you it,s nice to have provenance to the helmet.
