Hi , as far as I am aware the Greek troops wore US M1's and Pasgts, perhaps there was a Greek manufactured parade helmet but I am not 100% sure on this fact.
This is a very interesting liner indeed, the stamp in the inner crown does not look US, so I can only assume it is a Greek ( or other European made) liner. There is very little information out there regarding Greek M1 helmets,I used to be in contact with a Greek based collector and recall him telling me that Greece used US versions initially.
Many thanks for posting up this fascinating liner, I hope someone else here can provide some more specific information
the stamp or round mold mark in the liner looks like something Ive seen on european liners from Belgium or Germany? but the webbing looks like it's been modified? notice it is the snap in removable type? I think this could be a euro liner that was rewebbed by the Greeks, they appear to wear the liner with camo cover during field training as well? probably because it's lightweight and more comfortable, they probably have steel shells they use if they need more protection and use the liners during training.
Good point BG, I checked out one of My ABL liners and it has a similar vague marking , so could be Belgium?
And yes I never looked properly at the suspension side of things,another good point there.
I have a Greek Tiger stripe Cover myself ( which I sourced from James) and am sure there were some reference pictures of the Greek troops wearing The shell/liner together,so the training aspect makes perfect sense. The more I look at this liner/cover combo the more I like it
