A Westinghouse liner for the M1 combat helmet with applied insignia for a member of the 258th Military Police company of the U.S. Fourth Army. The liner is in excellent condition, with the expected scuffs and scratches from use and wear, since the MP's usually wore these distinctive helmet liners, rather than actual combat helmets, when on duty in non-combat areas. The underside of one of the interior web straps is dated in December of 1965.
