    Default New here, liner question

    First off let me begin by saying I'm very impressed with the knowledge on this forum. I'm not so much a miltaria collector as I am someone who should have lived in the 40s. I have two 40s cars along with quite a bit of other 40s items.I have a deep intrest in WWII and that's how I found this forum. My question is I recently purchased a liner and know very little about it. It does have the eyelet hole in front and the nape strap and headband but is missing the center part of the webbing and tie. It also has a insignia on the side that says "flaming missiles". I would post pic but I haven't received it yet and I haven't figured out how yet anyway. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi. Both WWII and 1951 liners had the hole in the front. The 'Flaming Missiles' insignia on its side could denote Cold War use, maybe 1950s perhaps? One way you can tell the period of the liner is by the webbing color, I think that the 1951 liner webbing is darker, but I'm sure somebody else here can enlighten us more.

    I will try to post pics when I get it. My little bit of digging revealed that the Flaming Missiles were the 41st antiaircraft battalion but that's all I know. I thought maybe someone on here might know something of that battalion and if that was a WWII battalion. Maybe I could post the link to ebay for pics.
