WWII Mint Helmet Net With Instructions

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 


I picked this up years ago at an estate sale, never installed on a helmet. Can anyone confirm that its WWII vintage?

WWII vintage yeah


Here's a great picture of these nets 'in action''

I think it's called the M1944 Net, Helmet and was certainly in use in late WW2.

Money can't buy happiness -- but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Corvette than in a Yugo.

I belive "M1944" is a collector name, with thr offical name being the rather vague "net, helmet, with band" that's on the tag.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so here's a thousand pictures!
