    You are welcome James, I will have to dig mine out and check out the liners/shell manafacturers and post them here!

    And yes Emile came up trump's here, good man.

    The only other way around this would to have used a Norwegian/ Danish example which are the same as the Dutch liner chinstraps.

    I prefer the look of the hessian/ netting over the Dutch DPM covers too, even though I have both examples

    Hi all
    Here's a pic of my pair of M53's one with the DPM cover... thanks again James!!
    and one with a hessian/burlap helmet cover I picked up today at my local militaria fair and fitted it with a Dutch issue net and a piece of inner tube!! more thanks James !! now I think the seller told me it was a British one!!??? i dunno!!??? both liners are Dutch SW 85 and Us 91 with the clip in sweatbands and canvas liner chinstraps, one shell is Dutch marked LS but the other is probably a Belgian one with no markings and terrible quality badly fitting replacement T1 chinstraps!!!!!!!
