Just a quick question, isn't there two manufacturers of the fibre liner. Hawley, and the other being the General Fibre Company, if memory serves me correct. Does anyone have a picture of a GFC fibre liner, i can't say i've ever seen one. Are they the same as the Hawley fibres', with both rayon, and the khaki version suspension?

The General Fiber Company was a subcontracter of Hawley. The company made Apprx. 120,000 liners! It is a very rare liner to say the least! It is marked inside with a simple capital G. You can find more in Armold's book, Painted Steel on page 352!

Cheers,

Mike
