    Iraqi M-80 Lid. Empty Iraqi M-80 Lid.

    Post by Easy Gee on Sun Aug 22, 2010 11:00 am

    Hi Guys.

    This is my one and only Iraqi M-80 lid, this one was "Allegedly" brought back by a Royal Marine in 2003, sold it to the dealer I got it off, for a fiver (£5.00), well that's the story anyway....I bought the lid not the story...but it does sound about right to me Wink......I wish I'd only paid a Fiver though!!!!!!!!!



    This lid has the Iraqi Army property Mark,and has Arabic script on the liner cradle ,and on the chinstrap.... Haven't a clue what it say's ,but would love to find out one day.....This lid is of South Korean origin,but I'm after a M-90 ( Iraqi manufactured) to add to the collection...I guess I need to keep searching around in the surplus stores...cheers Guys,Gary.

    It could be Republican Guard helmet because their insignia is red triangle. Nice one. Smile

    Iraqi M-80 Lid. April-1990-President-of-I-033

    April 1990: Iraq's president, Saddam Hussein, addresses Iraqi troops

    notice most of these Iraqi soldiers wear the M80 helmet in standard green like your helmet

    also note that several of these soldiers are wearing a knit cap with their helmet, this could be why so many helmets are missing the original webbing, they were probably misplaced when they removed it to wear a knit cap inside for warmth.

    Iraqi Green M80 Helmet From my Collection

    Here is the one I found in Balad, Iraq last month it was sitting on a back of the T wall in an E.O.D Compound. The Master Cheif let me take it because he told me they were going to clean up the Compound yard. I am going to send it home as soon as I can in the next few days.

    Thank you for Viewing
