    Default Dutch Souvenir brought along from Afghanistan

    Hi, mates,

    in this thread:
    M826 Aramid, Netherlands
    I was showin´ You some Dutch M826 lids.

    Today I wanna show You an Dutch M826, "served" in Afghanistan, as the seller told it to me.
    My fellow collector´s mate is always lookin´ for "camouflaged" helmets of the Bundeswehr, issued in Afghanistan, and/or in Africa.
    Unmeant he received a "Dutch" helmet, I was lucky to buy by accident ...

    IMO a pretty, "used up" lid, but, I like it !

    The helmet is personalized, and, there´s still some Afghan "soil" (sand) left in the pot ...

    The Netherlands went into action in 2001, the helmet, obviously, was manufactured in 1997.

    So, I´m, meanwhile, not that sure if this, particular, helmet was in Afghanistan ...

    Hello,

    the helmet now has a longer forum and internet presence behind it.

    First accidentally presented here as a Bundeswehr helmet:

    Gefechtshelme der Bundeswehr - Uniformen und Kopfbedeckungen - Militaria Fundforum


    and then longer on Kleinanzeigen

    Gefechtshelm Afghanistan ISAF abgetarnt Niederlande in Baden-Wurttemberg - Sinzheim | eBay Kleinanzeigen


    Do you think the paint is authentic? Definitely a very interesting look.

    Regards
