Parish Reading WW2 Helmet


Recommended Posts

The guy I got it from said it belonged to his grandfather which according to an obituary he sent to me, served as a military policeman in the ETO from 1942-1945. It had a helmet net with a camo band and a late war liner. The chinstraps are standard OD 7 but are too short to fit around the back of the helmet. It is marked P3 above one of the chinstrap bales.

Absolute gem of a piece. Hope I'm not stepping out of line by asking, but if you were at all interested in selling the piece I'd love to talk. I apologize for begging on your thread, gonna go back to admiring it

I apologize but it has already been sold. I resolved to keep it for a while but then I stumbled upon a first pattern M1955 Vest and acquired it without selling a kidney. So I kind of spiraled into building up a Vietnam USMC Display from there.
