Hmmm, seeing the dirt pattern on the shell from the net means they have been together for a long time.

 

Could it possibly be a variant net from a fishing float? I know that some soldier would use those.

 

See this thread: http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/229727-helmet-net-question/

 

I also know that some soldiers liked things that made them stand out and during spare time they would knit their own nets or cut old fishing nets to use on their helmet; as long as it held foliage they were ok with it.

It kind of looks like a shipping net used on ships. I think this is period done, looks great.

Somebody had to get the blame so he got picked....

Most likely a GI made net from a cargo net. Could you take out the liner and show what the net looks like in the shell?

I honestly wouldn't do that, the net could shift and it would be very hard to move back.

 

aye...
