I think this is the only camo helmet I have.

Here's my field made camouflaged cover and net on a fixed bail helmet with Hawley liner named to a F. H. Hess. I purchased this helmet from the garage of a Dallas estate sale back in the early 1980s. The burlap cover has been daubed with a lighter and darker shade of green paint. I've never had the liner out of the shell for fear of damaging something. There's a similar example to be found on page 368 of Chris Armold's book Painted Steel.

 

Regards,

 

Dave

Dave, if I am not mistaken I see a somewhat blurred black instamp on the inside. Likely LINER-FIBRE-M-1 and it seems a capital G below, if the G is indeed there you have a General Fibre Co. liner, not a Hawley.

This one comes from a friend's collection. It's a front seam swivel bail and was found in a surplus dealer's warehouse about 10-12 years ago. The dealer had just received a shipment of over 700 helmets from DRMO.

I really love camo M1's. You don't see too many of them vs. their German counterpart. I asked Giorgio if I could add to this thread and I'd love to see other forum members post their M1 camo's!!
