M1 helmets

The M1 was introduced in the Dutch Armed Forces in 1943, by the Marine Brigade who were trained at Camp Lejeune by the uSMC. In 1944, during the liberation of the southern Netherlands, the Stoottroepen in Limburg were equipped with American uniforms and weapons, including the M1 helmet. M1 helmets have also been used by the Dutch detachment (NDVN) during the Korea War, 1951-1953.

In addition to the Troop Helmet (m53), the M1 was used on a limited scale until the mid-1990s, until it was replaced by the composite Combat Helmet (m95).
