The 2nd model of the Helmet Parachute, the earlier version, known among collectors as the M76, was labelled helmet Parachutists, Lightweight, had a smooth exterior moulded finish and the chrome mounting bolts were know to lose their finish, on this model the exterior has a moulded rough textured surface and bolt heads that hold the green colour somewhat better.  As with most of these, it has a Cover from the GS Mk6 helmet, in this case Temperate DPM, as no specific para cover was ever produced or issued, though the first model two banded covers became synonymous with the para lightweight helmet but was not actually a para specific item.
