    Hi James.

    A Greek M1 clone, the Greeks produced their own M1 and equipped their Army in the late 60's. The liners were plain plastic green very much like say a Dutch liner, webbing was OD and followed the US style.

    Quite a scarce item Mate, congrats on getting hold of this beautiful example Very Happy

    Your welcome as ever mate.

    BTW I like the ref picture James, you can clearly see the M1 style chinstraps, and the way the cover is sandwiched between the shell and liner, I'm surprised they don't use a helmet band to tidy up the profile a bit, but that's me being a lid- Geek I guess Wink
