    Nice collection!! I'm particularly interested in the Milsco KNIL reissue, are thes easy to obtain please send me a message.
    I've seen plenty of Japanese helmets being reissued by the TNI, you could look for these.

    The Brimob doesn't look like an M1, rather a Romanian M73, or a Dutch M34.

    Hi Feldgrau,

    Nice collection!

    Why would the Milsco be marked MB for the Indonesian name BriMob (Brigade Mobil). Would you know til whay period these ex-KNIL helmets were in use by TNI, Polisi and Civil Defence?

    Cheers,
    Emile

    Thank you emile.

    I don't know, maybe in the postwar this helmet was equipped for the police? This is the original condition when i obtained it, dark green TNI color.

    Maybe after the dutch forces left in 1950, this helmet was given to the brimob and later went to the TNI reserve?
    About the period, i don't know for sure. I once found a photo in the 1960's, a soldier bringing a madsen, maybe pre-war made one. And also during the trikora operation volunteer parade, a soldier seen wearing an m1 but also pointing a klewang!
    Maybe all of the pre-war equipment lasts until 1960's. I guess during the soeharto's gouvernement all of that equipment was stored in the reserve or scrapped.
