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?

 

Thanks

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

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