The Netherlands "M53 troepenhelm" used by United Nations, #2
This is my second Netherlands UN helmet.
This helmet was originaly used by the Royal Netherlands Airforce, see the grey inside and the grey chinstrap.
I am not sure if this one actually has been used as UN helmet or if someone painted it to make it look like the real thing, the color and the decals are correct.
The heat stamp within the shell is LS79 8, again a Linnemann-Schnetzer,
This helmet is made in the year 1979
The liner that came with this shell was also a former RNAF see: United Nations #2 Liner
