this helmet was recovered at St-Jean-de-Daye, a small village between Carentan and St-Lo. The soldier camouflaged the shell over the net, and also painted the inside of the liner. Never touched since 1944. There are a letter and the last four digit number of his ASN written inside the shell. Unfortunately, the net is gone.
This is a first type of third pattern liner, manufactured by Westinghouse mi-1942, with fixed leather strap (missing).
