    Well today must be my lucky day Gary I contacted an Italian collector friend and he had one Camouflage cover he was willing to part with the second variation with the button on neck veil and the brown camo net with the wood toggles

    Regards Mark

    Thanx Gary I was surprised he had an example on hand to be honest and complete with the neck veil .
    I was full on expecting him to tell me that he would keep his eyes open for one for me.

    Look's great Mark, it would be good to see this model with the camo cover fitted too, incidentally the liner is useful to see as well as it provides a clear shot of the design

    Great thread of a great helmet!
    If I can make my contribution would add three helmets in my collection.
    These operating examples were used by Italian paratroopers during the 70-80s.

    Cheers
    Roberto

    I completely agree with James Roberto a lovely trio and the last example is with out a doubt top shelf and as I like my helms showing what would appear to be genuine field usage.
