    That's what I wondered - was the liner a refurb. I wear a Brodie with a reproduction WWI liner at Great War living history events, but I am certainly not an expert on them. That said, the liner doesn't look 'quite right' even without a point by point comparison to originals.

    I think the strap is different and maybe the rivet/screw at the top, from an original liner.
