    Dried Up Old Liner

    What do you guys do when the liner is so dry and brittle that pieces fall out every time the helmet is moved?

    Looks like the leather chinstrap on mine was burnt...or it was so dry it imploded...don't know. The pad at the top looks good though. It even has the rubber ring underneath the pad which I thought was odd. Did I mention this is a US made helmet? run away

    Has anyone tried a repop liner in a mkI/1917 lid?



    This piece just broke off before I took the pic...the whole liner is as brittle as this. You could literally crush this thing in your hands.

    Since this is such a nice lid I bought a repop liner from Prairie Flower Leather Co. http://www.pflco.com/militaria.htm

    I will post it when it comes in and take pics of the installation process. If it is good quality and just what the doc ordered I will probably buy three more for the other WWI shells I have.

    Sucks, but it is better than empty shells laying around.
