Hello

What are your thoughts on this  helmet net?

 

* I know we used British & Canadian etc.

*The net came with a M1 I just purchased at a flea market.

* I'm leaning towards fishing

 

Thank you very much

Tony

I'm not a fan, the weave is too fuzzy.

 

Here are some photos of WW2 nets:

Mr.Jerry

What you do have to remember is that while there were "issue" nets, there were certainly ones that were improvised. (from fishing, cargo, and camo netting) but these are often also added- so this is one of those "did it look like it was on the helmet for a long time" kind of things?

Hello

Thank you for the help and pictures.

The net did not look like it was on there for a long time (the net did not leave an impression on the helmet)

Thanks again

Tony

Reminds me of the Austrian nets from the 1950-60s maybe?...they had a very coarse fuzzy construction like that, just a thought i could be wrong....mike
