    Im not too sure about this one, much better photos needed in my opinion,the liner looks nothing like a ww2 para , theres no extra straps and the head band appears to be too new and not fixed as you would expect, but id wait for more judgements

    well its not even a US liner that's for sure don't know about the shell from those pic's & is definitely not a WW2 airborne helmet !!!!!!

    Post war Dutch liner with repro US leather strap.

    The shell has late type US strap, not Dutch. NL shell's are marked in the rim, i.e. U's, LS, VB, SW or VDN followed or preceded by figures indicating year of manufacture and/or lot number.

    This is a composition.

    Cheers,
