Nice Saint Clair! I've got a soft spot myself for the SC and Hood Rubber liners. Maybe I feel bad for the underdog since these guys just never made the cut. Anyhow, I've got a few in my collection also.

Even with the short production runs these did make it to the war zones. My Raider helmet has a SC liner. His helmet had a hawley in the shell right up to a week or so before 2nd battalion departed New Caledonia for Bougainville. He did not like the hawley's tendency to rot easily among other things. So he went and got one of the "new" kind they had been getting. It was the 2nd type SC. It is what was in the helmet when it was found. Your SC is a very very hard to find one. I really like it.

I just bought my first St Clair on EBay. The price was high, but I wanted a Rayon lined with green paint on the interior and that is what I got (in addition to the SC stamp variation). Here are some pics. Enjoy

I don't really want to push it too much but my book has a 28 page section on St Clair liners and a 10 page section on Hood Rubber Co liners.
