The helmet liner was worn by the Qahn Cahn. The Qahn Cahn were the Military Police of the South Vietnamese Republic. They were known by their nickname the White Mice: they wore white cap covers and white gloves while on duty. Their helmet liner was always in the same format however with a different numeral to the side depending on district.

This particular helmet liner is 100% original. There are of course a plethora of fake items that come from Vietnam now, but this item is evidently original on examination. There is a minute crackle over the entire painted surface. The lining of the helmet is completely absent. This was because this helmet liner was used as a rice pail for many years. It was obtained in the 90’s from a traveller who visited Vietnam. To find any painted helmet from the Vietnam War era is exceptionally scarce. Externally this helmet displays very well. Code: 52517
