    here is a unusual photo I found showing a Cambodian soldier in 1970 eating from a rice bowl and wearing the same model helmet as yours, the newspaper photos describes it as a Russian helmet, but they are incorrect, it's actually a French M51 and it looks like the soldier used some material to make a replacement field repair chin strap
