M1951 with Splint or Water camouflage cover. These covers come in at
least two different shades - one is lighter, the other darker.
Also note that the covers for the M1951 could also be worn on the M1936 helmets, since the latter helmets continued to be in use.
|Another, very similar cover.
|The border guards cover for
the M1951 helmet.
|A cover made of loose weave,
with a faint print in brown and two greens. The cover is circular in
shape and is secured on the helmet by stuffing it between the liner
steel band and the inner shell. Similar, or the same? covers were used
by Soviet, and later, Russian, troops.
|This is the cover for the
current Bulgarian composite helmet. Here photographed on the very
similar Schuberth 826. The Bulgarian helmets are made by
Croatian-German company Šestan-Busch. The picture below shows the back
of the cover, with the securing strap for goggles. The only label is a
peace-keeping missions, there is a desert pattern cover.
