The guy I got it from said it belonged to his grandfather which according to an obituary he sent to me, served as a military policeman in the ETO from 1942-1945. It had a helmet net with a camo band and a late war liner. The chinstraps are standard OD 7 but are too short to fit around the back of the helmet. It is marked P3 above one of the chinstrap bales.

Very cool. Did the guy you got it from give you any info about the vet who wore it, like what unit he was with, or even a picture?
I got an obituary. Apparently the guy was a MP in Italy and enlisted in 1942.
