Donkey helmet

Recommended Posts

I got this liner within the past couple months, don't really know what it can be attributed to, but I loved the artwork. The liner itself is an early capac, and I paired it with a fixed bail schluter with od7 straps for the photo

It’s the 66th.

 

Great artwork

Yes, just noticed that manay, the 66 on that bridle hardware (Forgot what that metal disc is called)

 

Welp, the WWII 66th Field Artillery was an armored one, the 66th Armored Field Artillery Battalion, 4th Armored Division, still if it is related to this unit, the use of the Mule, or Horse may be a traditional sort of thing, hearkening back to the origins of all field artillery when they were horse drawn.

I believe they are called bridle rosettes. Fantastic art work.

Throwing out another possibility. That sure looks like a USMA Army Mule, and the Class of 1966 would go with the art work. So, possibly a "Beat Navy" liner.
