M-1 Liner - Westinghouse 1st Pattern - High Pressure
Here is an original WW2 M-1 Westinghouse 1st Pattern High Pressure Liner.
This type of liner features rayon suspension held to the liner by aluminium square washers. Both the rayon sweatband and nape are present. As with most fixed chinstrap liners the leather chinstrap has broken but the complete strap including the buckle is still present, so could be repaired for display.
The liner itself is in fair condition, the rayon webbing is very fragile in places and has broken away from the square washers in a couple of areas.
The liner shell has it's original matt paint finish.
