Original parachutist helmet liner -A- straps. Matched Pair. This is an original set that was torn from a late war Westinghouse helmet liner. Still present are the remnants of the liner body, od3 triple weave webbing and -A- washers.
Condition is used. Webbing is solid showing little use. Upper folds reinforcement stitching is still present were visible. Please note, the left buckle is missing the tongue. We are providing a replacement buckle that perfectly matches the right side. The damaged buckle can either be replaced entirely or repaired using the tongue from the supplied buckle.
This is a perfectly serviceable, original set in very good condition. These are nearly impossible to find. Great care must be used to repair and install these. It is strongly recommended that this is done by an individual experienced in restoration.
*In 2005, we bought two dozen WWII airborne liners and a paper bag full of -A- straps. They had been found in the attic crawlspace of a Fire Station. The straps were loose because they had been unceremoniously torn from the liners. We rebuilt what liners we could and these are what is leftover from the lot.
