Original and scarce (not current reproduction) blue/grey painted Australian RAN (Royal Australian Navy) issue US M1 steel helmet used by Australian crews during the Vietnam War period. Complete with liner, suspension, neckband, sweatband with /|\ markings. The liner has the Australian NSN (National Stock Number) stamped in white. The helmet heat stamp is R over FC which is unknown to us but we have had a few with this heatstamp on the Australia issue helmets so most likely be a contractor identification for an Australian contract. The helmet chinstraps have been cut off which seemed to happen frequently with Australian troops. The helmet in the photo is the helmet you receive. Scroll down for more photo description. NOTE: These helmets are sold for collectable purposes only and are not suitable for any other purpose including, but not limited to, use on motorcycles, bicycles, skateboards etc and are not registered by Government authorities for these purposes.
