    Hi James the shell does looks like the Dutch 80ties clone,theres a lot here that they are trying to sell. But there are so much of these clones that the sellers are stuck with it I think for life Ive got 2 of them with original liners. But even though they are not rare they can't be missed in a army lid collection.

    Hi James.

    I really like this one, especially with the Hessian cover, and net!

    Another fine example of the "Euro Clone" M1.

    I will have a look through my collection to see if I have a spare liner for you.

    No worries James, if you get to the stage where you are hitting a dead end sourcing a liner, give me a shout!

    As ever your display's are brilliant mate, what is the lid above the Dutch model, the one with the beachside out Mitchell cover on....Austrian ??

    Very good point James, and something I have thought about before, but never found any definitive answers too!


    Belgian helmet covers

    According to the website above the Hessian was hand brushed, makes sense, as in pictures of Dutch troops wearing these lids, no two lids look the same!

    Hope this helps Mate.
