    unfortunately we cannot say for defiant as these were not used by the US alone other countries bought them from the US as surplus for their own use.

    p.s. your English is very good & welcome to the forum

    One other thing no one has talked about, the cammo cover is post-Vietnam ERDL pattern and not Vietnam issue ERDL.
    It does look like someone has gone over the black with a felttip pen though.. but even taking that in to account i am 99% sure that this is not a Vietnam cover.. the helmet.. well i'll leave that to others to say.

    Hi Nick,

    Yes I thought I'd give my pennies worth. I just realized it might just as well be a Canadian used helmet. It is not Danish as they had different liners.

    US or Canadian?!?

    Cheers,
    Emile
