WW2 Inland Para Liner

Recommended Posts

Picked this up from a picker friend Tuesday, original WW2 Inland para liner with chin cup still intact but broke on one side, it was used obviously as a post war VFW color caurd lid. Should I clean it or leave alone. Bummer about the chin cup, it's a five hole variation.

Very nice liner, AL used or not, these Inlands don't grow on trees.

If you put in inside an M1C, it won't matter how it's painted.

Getting a medal means two things:

1. Someone saw you do it.

2. You didn't tick off the approval chain.

Wow! Super cool find! Congrats! It just goes to show you shouldn't write off these VFW painted liners too quickly, they started out as something else to begin with! I've got a VFW and a CAP painted ones that are Inlands, but not para-liners! I wish!

I would NOT put this inside a helmet. That white paint will come off inside the helmet, and really make a mess of the inside of your lid. I bought a minty fixed bail M1 with a YELLOW liner, and it was a chore removing all the yellow smudges from the inside of the helmet.


As for taking off the white paint? As long as it can be done properly, I would do it.
