In reference to the US liners provided early in production: -YES (sort of')
From what I was told; Denmark and possibly Norway were initially provided with US helmets, along with US liners. The damp climate proved hard conditions on the fiber liners, and most were eventually replaced with the plastic. (First run of plastic liners-1957) New production came standard with plastc. Occasionally a Danish helmet can be found with a WW2 US liner.
I was also under the impression, that despite minor differences & nationalities, many of the European M1 shells were produced by Ulbricht in Austria. (U.SCH) - Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, (and the Netherlands?) contracted U.SCH production. The liners were often respective national production or replacement.
SABREJET: Excellent info and thread. VERY useful.
