Mitchell Helmet Cover in Falklands?


Recommended Posts

Was watching a doco on the Falklands and spotted what I think is a Mitchell helmet cover on a 2 Para bloke. Or am I going crazy?


Sorry mods if not US related enough.

Yep, they wore them as there was not an issued British helmet cover at the time. They bought what they could from Surplus stores. Even some pics of ERDL covers I believe. There are some better close up pics too.
