    I don't think the ring is for a grenade...almost looks like some kind of key ring to me. The helmet is a WWII Schlueter front seam with sand in the nam green paint. I had this helmet for years and the ring was always connected to the chinstrap. The cover is not original to this helmet though.

    My uncle was a Canadian Vietnam vet and this is one of the many covers...among other things...that he gave me. The pack of TP was also given to me by him. Sadly he passed away a few years ago after a long battle with alcohol and a sudden stroke.

    Cheers Mate, I actually enjoy it more than my Kraut helmets! when I wear it I clatter my teeth to make the Huey sound (sounds good because of the ear phones)
    and hey I'm not crazy..... hey?????

    Sounds like something I'd do if I ever got a flight helmet from that era, maybe while playing some period music also
