WWII Westinghouse Airborne Paratrooper M2 M1-C Helmet Liner
This original U.S. WWII Westinghouse manufactured paratrooper helmet liner is ID'd to John E. Hanlin, serial #13359610. It features original factory installed A-yokes with large cast buckles. The A-washers are blackened brass, which date the liner's production from mid-1944 to 1945. The khaki suspension is torn throughout. It comes with its original headband and a recently installed neckband. Interestingly, the veteran utilized medical tape as a substitute for one of the headband's missing spring clips. The liner's exterior retains an original field repaint. This liner would display quite nicely in either an M2 "D-bail" or an M1-C paratrooper helmet shell.
