Helmet, M1, liner Westinghouse, US Navy, Radarman


Superb genuine WWII US M1 helmet, swivel bales, manufactured by Schlueter, original 2nd pattern canvas straps with steel buckles; complete with its liner in very good condition (apart from the damaged leather chinstrap), OD canvas straps and leather sweatband, unpainted A washers, manufactured by Westinghouse.

Both the shell and the liner feature the Navy grey paint; Petty Officer 2nd Class rank stripes have been painted red on the left side of the shell; initials AL and Radarman's trade insingia have been engraved and painted on its front -- all in all, an amazing artefact.
