    Hi Guys.

    Whilst there is nothing rare about this 1967 model of M1A1 LL Para helmet, it is interesting that the original owner,had jumped from a CH-47 (Chinook)) three times, and a C-160 Transall Transport Plane five times.I am not sure however of the the significance of the MER K marked five times??

    Hope you too find this interesting!

    Thanks for looking,Gary Wink

    Dont think this was the one but might be worth getting in touch with the seller?

    Hi Graham, agreed entirely!

    I'm amazed that these helmets all be it very cool, but one's never actually took part in any real conflicts, raise so much cash????

    If I get hold of another cheap one, you will be first in line for a trade mate Wink

    He has some interesting stuff and his prices are realistic.

    In my own opinion,wouldnt pay more than £25 for one of these.

    Good point, I agree he's not exactly one of the profiteering types ala Brokennarrow, and agree again I would not, and have not paid more than 25 quid for one of these, I paid about 15 quid for mine Wink

    Cannot remember what I paid for mine in all honesty but would think around the £20 mark.
