    Default us advisor vietnam 1965

    I like the set up with the Vietnam era liner, the straps look like a simple hand sewn field repair , it reminds me of something a US advisor might have used in Vietnam like this photo from Newsweek Magazine 1965

    very nice lid, i like the net and the insignia on the liner, i would leave them together.

    Default

    Nice lid Tim,these nets were the most prolific worn by the AEF bound for Omaha and Utah and yet there so scarce here in the Uk,they just dont appear for sale anywhere,the liner is Korean period,but the sweatband is out of place as its dated 1979,but overall looks fine with the net in place..............
    With Regards Jake.
