    Yes, Israseli. They used M1 helmets from 50's to 80's.

    Here's mine.. shell is un-marked, but the chinstrap is Isreali marked. Liner has an isreali mark pressed into it and I think the webbing is marked too.. I'd have to look at it again.

    Fins...

    the Israelis also used US made steel shells that were modified with the 3 point straps, Ive seen one that was made from a US WWII fixed bale shell and they added a extra swivel bale at the rear and retained the fixed bales

    one of my helmets also has a Vietnam era US made liner mfg by Firestone that has been rewebbed by the Israelis and has an Israeli made headband
