was used in post WWII Norway. This is the net that preceded the M1965
net. Here shown on an M1935 helmet.
M1958 helmet. The net is held in place by an elastic cord. Note that
the net is woven, not knit. This makes it different from the similar
|A helmet mounted lamp for
various Norwegian helmets. It is held in place by a band with three
adjustable hooks. The lamp is of exactly the same type as the Swedish Civil Defence helmet lamp, but this one
is made by the Pertrix firm. I do not know whether it is made in
Germany or by the Swedish branch.
The leather backing of the lamp is stamped "S.F.", which might stand for "Sivilforsvaret" (Civil Defence). But, then again, it might not.
|This picture shows the
box, that also is a flashlight,
that can be disconnected and used separately. It has two leather prongs
to attach it to the front buttons of a jacket. The battery box is
"NR 199 M" Pertrix S.F.".
|In the last years of service,
the three-colour scrim (dark brown, dark green and light green), held
place by the M1965 net was a common camouflage on the M1958 helmet.
This specimen seems to have sat in a locker most of the time.
|Cover for the Norwegian
Schuberth 826 (M1994?) helmet. It has three elastic foliage bands and
is reversible. Attached to the helmet with a drawstring. '01' on the
shield on the label indicates contract or production year. The
camouflage pattern was introduced with the M1975 field uniform.

|I show this cover as a curiousity. It is made for the PASGT
helmet and is secured on the helmet just by threading the 3-point
chinstrap through four slits in the cover. I suspect this was made for
paintball and airsoft players.
