    Arab - Israeli war era MKIII

    Heres a British MKIII that has been repainted desert tan and relined, has light markings written on liner but cant tell if it's Arabic or Hebrew? the tan cotton chin strap doesnt look British either, the liner is attached with a rivet not by screw

    this type of helmet could have been used during the Suez/Sinai War 29 Oct.-6 Nov. 1956




    British helmets & web gear were used by both Arab and Israeli ground forces
    Post a photo of the markings and I should be able to help.

    Obkrieger,

    the markings are very faded but by the looks Im pretty sure it's Hebrew writing used by the Israelis

    Battle gear, it is definitely Israeli, the gray liner is a local copy or refit of the British MkII liner.

    B-G, thanks for this thread. I only have one such helmet from the IDF in my collection. It's a pretty old one. I hope you don't mind if I post it here.

    Battlegear, this a great example that has so much character.

    I'm not sure these were actually used by paras, I think the para moved from the British MkII to the M76, in photos these are more commonly seen in armored infantry units, but feel free to prove me wrong. Either way the thread keeps getting better.
