After passing the: "CONTROLE 637 ICW", the 637 Intendance Centrale Werkplaats (Intendance Central Workshop) at Woerden the helmet shells and liners were put together again without paying any attention on what combination.
Thats why you can see a 1957 helmet shell made by Verblifa, with a 1987 liner made by NV BECCON.
My 1957 helmet shell came with this 1987 liner:
I found information about this company: www.berghapedia.nl/index.php/N.V._Beccon
N.v. Beccon, that existed from 1921 until 1993, was located in Doetinchem. One of the directors was Mr b. Becking. The name Beccon stands for Becking and Conijn.
It was a metal pressing plant and emaillefabriek, and later also a galvanizing plant. There were petroleum and pans created, and further for example street signs. In a letter of 11 december 1936 to the municipality Bergh is informed that in note 18 street signs are taken according to the information you provide against the cleanliness of contents f. 1.25 per piece NET.
On 30 november 1944, towards the end of the second world war, the factory bombed by Allied aircraft. A Department that came with the Germans was in use, was destroyed, and part of the factory was in ashes. Director Becking is killed in this attack, as well as its Managing Director Schultz, a worker and three German soldiers. The day before was still present at the funeral in Becking Azewijn by Zeno Door Frost, which likewise factory Director was.
The company was, along with Vredestein, one of the first who are establised on the Hamburger industrieterrien pants. In 2004 has been in the hands of Intermeco. In 2008 are the premises, located a the north side of the track and to the East of the Misset Street, demolished.
