    M1 - Helmet Brigada Paracaidista

    Post by Easy Gee on Mon Jun 14, 2010 4:30 pm

    Hi Guys.

    Heres my Spanish M1,( M1965) which I believe was used by airborne and Marines
    ( please correct me ,if I'm wrong)

    The shell is a standard WW2 front seam,US M1,but the liner has markings which,I am yet to understand.

    Could anyone let me know the manafacturers of this type of liner,this would be great for my research.

    Enjoy,and any comments would be greatly appreciated Cool

    Thanks Gary Smile

    Hello, Spain M1 helmets have been used since the 50s and 90s, the first to arrive were from the American aid, in the 50s.
    From what I can see the shell and liner are of American origin, but the chin straps and interior are Spanish, the kind I would say that belongs to the Marines (the BRIPAC also, in this I have my doubts)
    What if I can say with certainty is that M1 is not a 1965 made in Spain.

    I will see what I can find out, but I think the liner was German made. Will get back.

    Shubert Werk Braunshweig, so the liner was probably a rework for use by the Spanish.

    Excellent helmet!

    If the liner is ex-Bundeswehr it is actually quite valuable on its own. This type of helmet was produced in the 1950s only as a near identical copy of the US M1. After that they went to a single piece M1 style helmet (several variants) until going with Kevlar.

    Well, I still think it's Spanish (Inside) Do not think it's German, at least I have no news of that.In Spain has taken advantage of the materials heretofore unsuspected.
    For example, the Italian helmet M-33 came in the Civil War and has served the Air Force until the seventies, forty years of use (I'll put mine).
    Well as we come, I put some photos of my Marine's helmet.

    Slowly emerging new data.
    I talked to my good friend and collector told me that the first M-1 arrived in Spain in the 50's came from Germany ........... is a factor to consider.
