Seeking Picture Of WWII Sniper With Camo Helmet


Recommended Posts

Back maybe 3 or 4 years ago, there was a thread on here that was just random "field expedient" helmet covers, if I recall correctly. Anyway, I remember there being a great picture of an Army sniper (looked to be in the ETO if I remember correctly). He was sitting, and there were other soldiers around him, and I think he was either looking over his M1903 or cycling the action of it. He had some sort of burlap helmet cover, or maybe it was just fabric? I just remember it being a really great photo, and I'm hoping someone here might remember it as well, and maybe even know where to find it. I also remember it being big and clear, so it may have been a LIFE Magazine one? Anyone remember this photo?
