    Default IDF helmets

    the width of the black rubber tubing varied by the individual, notice some soldiers had a very large piece of tubing on their helmets.

    The tubing that goes around the rim is of a later era though. Like with the version of Mark.

    I have found on line in reference to the thickness of the tube I believe you are spot on and I will have to cut it down a bit to make it more period correct for the purpose of display.

    Regards Mark
    Mark, could you please post the link for the on line reference, I would be interested to read it, personally I would be very surprised if there was any formal regulation related to tube width, you can see pictures from all periods with all widths, I always assumed it depended on the slice of the inner tube you acquired.

    Thanks,
    Steve.

    Hi Steve sorry bad choice of words I should have been more clear I found on line referance in the form of period images and for the most part the width does appear to be smaller on the pictures I examined from the 67 period at least with the para Mk II helmets.

    Good point Steve as to the reasoning behind my own decision to cut the tubing a little larger was so that I could tuck the camo net in behind it as it was a rather large net so that I could do away with cutting it and adding a string to hold it in place.
    And personal choice as I liked the way it looked with the wider band.

    Very interesting display James.
    Is that a hebrew stamp on the battledress?
    In the very early postwar years many of the MKII's and MKIII's weren't refurbished until later on. This is not regulation or "fashion" but simple practicality. Why fix something that isn't broken yet.
    This might be one of them. Very hard to say.
