    Here is my French M1 TAP/EO modified paratrooper helmet that was used in Indochina. I'm wondering everyone's opinion on if the chin strap liner is real or a fake. There are not many references on this so any help is appreciated!

    I have that book but unfortunately it does not have much info on those chin straps.
