Thanks for correction and opinion.
the badge has the National Liberation Front flag colors red on top and blue on the bottom
the NLF is the VC
these Sun helmets are still in use today and the badge was most likely added to sell to tourists as a souvenir from VN
Interesting. How can we know if it is war period or if the badge was added later? Any clue?
Period helmets have painted flat insignias most of the time and are a little different shape and always in used condition I have not seen a wartime one that was mint ever
Thanks for help gel. It would be nice to see a picture of a period one.
Thank you. That's a very nice collection with good examples to see.
