US M1 Helmet with Liner - 82nd Airborne Division Tribute Design

This Original M1 Helmet is in very good condition when we got hold of it, and has since refurbished it to make it an excellent helmet for reenactors and collectors. It was originally issued to the Belgian forces in the UN, who used the American M1 design for many years after WW2.

We have given it a new lease of life using our US Olive Drab Spray paint to complete the iconic 'Pathfinder' camouflage scheme. It has a plastic, post-war liner owing to its post-war issue. The helmet has also had the chin strap hand sewn on as per WW2 helmets. 

This particular helmet has been designed as a tribute to the 82nd Airborne during WW2. The helmet has had the 82nd Airborne insignia hand painted on the front of the helmet as well as a parachute on the top. The commonly awarded nickname, 'The All Americans', has also been hand painted on the rear of the helmet. The operations that the 82nd Airborne took part in are noted in red. The locations where the division fought during World War 2 are noted in white. 

Please note that as these helmets are hand painted to order, a degree of variation should be expected.

Please allow an extra 4 weeks for delivery as these helmets are made to order and to gain the appropriate finish, they need suitable time for drying at various stages of production. Please Note: Our Customisation and Film Set Specialist is currently working off site on a TV project. There will likely be an additional month delay on all custom made helmets. Expected return to normal, mid to late June.
