Response to Re: Mk III helmet chinstrap

The Chin-strap Mk.III which is suitable for both later British Mk.II helmets and for the Mk.III, has one end sewn to a wire loop which engages one the the chin-strap lugs, while the other end passes through a wire slide buckle (which engages the other lug). The buckle end is folded and sewn over.
What you do not wnat is the Chin-strap Mk.IV, where the loop side is folded and sewn while the buckle side ends in a metal tag - this is peculiar to the Mk.IV helmet.
