Very nice M1 clone James, thanks for posting it and wearing both the chinstraps would get annoying.
That's a beaut James !!! Is the cover reversed American issue "Nam" type??? Or a home grown cover?!!!
is the shell a Taiwanese export model? they also used South Korean export liners
Thanks chaps ,the mitch cover is just simply a reversable nam period type but i was thinking of adding the us 6 colour cover i have ,the shell is pretty much like the one i posted a while back of which i dont own anymore but this time with the revised liner ,i think when last discussed this m1 style helmet we thought it might be of chinese origin ,i seem to recall battlegear posting a similar airborne liner that was advertised online as an iraqi gulf war bring back
Many thanks for posting this example James a first for me and an absolute beauty of a helmet and one I would gladly welcome into my collection a little more definative I'D would be good but I just love it all the same .
So now the hunt is on to see if I can source one for my own collection.
Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.
Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!
Hi mark and thanks for commenting the camo pattern is probably to good to have hidden under a cover ,the shell is completely clean with no visible stampings as is the liner ,it was also mentioned in an earlier thread of these style m1 clones of possibly being taiwanese in origin ,as for finding an example i will certainly keep a look out for you
Very nice James, a pretty rare helmet and following the research out there it appears to fit nicely in with it being Desert Storm era. Great to see another variation of the M1 helmet, there are some nice reference pictures out there on the web of middle eastern states soldiers wearing these...Saudi I think amongst others
Gary that info is music to my ears ,,thanks for dropping by and commenting
Very nice lid mate!....
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
