RVN Training Helmet

Dated: 1960s-1970s

Description: US made M1 Helemet, with painted insignia. In training, the helmets of individual recruits were marked with numbers denoting their specific squads/positions for identification. The helmet shown here could have been used in training by any branch at any training center throughout in Republic of Vietnam. This helmet comes with strong provenance, which assures its authenticity. It is believed this particular helmet came from the Quang Trung training center, although, again, helmets of this type were used in all training centers.

Army recruit training at Quang Trung training center, 1967.
