    Cool helmets Rene... I think you will find the camo net cover in the first 3 pics isn't the French cover but actually the reversible green/brown Australian Vietnam war issued one... Which is much rarer than a froggy salad cover If you have an Aussie M1 you should chuck it on that.

    On the net question, the French had stuff from all over the place in the early 50s - mainly US and UK surplus. So, if a net is period and from either of these it's hard to say it's wrong. Best Regards,
