UK Para Helmet – Update

Perhaps you`ll remember my Helmets in a row and UK paratrooper helmet 2008 version posts, so this will be nothing new to you. 🙂
But i like to show some close-ups again, because i love my helmet (with all the real deal add ons i got in the meantime – no more fakin`the issued funk – YEAH! :-)) and some people still don`t know what a British Army NVG strap-/mount combo looks like (and a standard US one does not look the part if you are a serious reenacter).

That`s it folks, get some Guinness, now! 🙂

  1. Nice Mockingbird -How do they work?

  2. The Mockingbird can be programmed in the field using any IR light source. This light can copy and transmit any IR signature that is put in front of it; with up to twenty seconds of recording time the possibilities are endless. The Mockingbird also features “Reverse Polarity Program Switching”. This feature assures that its programming and recording feature will only activate in one position while reserving the transmission of the programmed signature for the second position. By simply flipping the battery the user can easily and safely switch between programming and transmission.

  3. What was the base strap system you used before making the back clip? Where did you manage to get it from? Very nice work by the way.. 🙂

    • It was an ordinary USGI grunt strap combo that is still around everywhere today.
      The UK backside part was done from scratch – assuming its dimensions. I was really close comparing it to the original part later on.
      The complete UK mount-combo was bought directly from a serving soldier.
      Cheers! 🙂

  4. USGI grunt strap combo, for which helmet? Mich, PASGT?

  5. Hi there I was wondering would you consider selling this para helmet or the nvg strap.

    Thanks dan
