    Hi Masrinoo,
    I'm in Australia but I always thought the RAR ( royal Australian Regiment ) in the Vietnam conflict wore US sourced M1's. I never thought they were made out here? We mainly had the slouch & berets ....... & giggle hats on patrol in the light green.

    Cheers, Dan

    I just checked two M1's I have & the stamps I can see at the front inside are RF on one and HB on the other. These I know are Vietnam era.
