    hey guys, i'm just forwarding the old post that i made 3 months ago, i have been majorly busy with school and such, but i'll take the photos of what i now have in my growing collection. Thank you:

    hey guys, it's been a while since i've had these new findings, but a month ago, i was able to pick up a nice ww2 rear seam swivel bail helmet with the darker green painted over it for reissue (assuming it was reissued in KW) and a westinghouse liner with the green webbing with the eyelet hole on the front, which i believe is to also be KW. i also picked up a nice condition m1c liner, with the green webbing in good condition, with the A straps. i couldn't find any markings on the liner to indicate the making, but i'm sure that it is early vietnam war because it doesn't have the eyelet hole on the front. anyways i got all 3 for about $150 AUS including postage. i'll post some photos of them when i get home front school, and i would like any opinions on whether it was worth the the amount i spent.

    Nice little rising sun. I wonder what the writing on it says. I've always liked these little ones-Japanese soldiers would quite often fold them and stick them up under their hats or helmets. And don't let anyone tell you they were All made of silk. I've seen plenty of these cloth ones as well! William

    i believe they also had big ones signed by their family for good fortune, and if i am correct, they would tie it around their abdomin.

    but enough of flags, what you think of the helmets? i'm very proud of my m1-c liner, all i need is a steel pot to go with it and the early NAM covers.
