      Give a man an opinion and you feed him for a day,
      teach a man to use the "search" function on the WAF and you feed him for a lifetime.

        As it was told previously, it comes from a complete helmet i have. That helmet was fully dismounted by previous owners... and as each other parts are fully originals, i wanted an opinion about this pad as a part. But it come from a fully complete ET68 helmet.

            Your photo shows a late-war liner with black rubber. The original poster is showing an earlier type of rubber pad - the type seen in about 1940/41.

              Thanks for the reply Steve.
              Yes, I know. The picture was showed to understand what I wanted to mean.

              The only reply received shows that I had to be wrong
              However, even early pads are imo made from tighter foam, with very small holes quite near each other.

                Those are all pads from DD M38s - a different kind again. I am talking about the type found for a short period after these . See below.
