Actually, 'OTAN' is the French pronunciation of 'NATO'.........
Ahh Glad Wifey made it home in one piece big time!
Here's the 68 ZA helmet, well used in the conflict! liner strap was always was kept under the helmet liner webbing as Wifeys shots show in the previous post. Big differences in the shell strap male clip, the earlier 63 shell clip is a half type! note the ZA liner chin strap clasp
Great pick up Mate
The net seems untouched : )
All the best
Heres my French M51 Otan sourced from the same dealer as the SA M51 featured above. I think these helmets are quite underrated and will become more sought after in the future.
