Vietnam

Last updated on 7 December 2005.



This is said to be an ARVN cover for the M1 helmet. It is very amateurishly made in the style of the U.S. helmet covers. This individual is more badly sewn than I would do... I have no idea if this cover is authentic or just an imaginative fake.

 

This cover is said to have been used by ARVN Military Police. It is made from very bleached uniform material. There are a couple of seams left from the original piece of clothing. Foliage slots have been sewn. It shows no wear from use on a helmet. I suspect this to be a fake. A name is written inside it, and can be seen in the picture below.




I would be very happy if someone with knowledge on ARVN stuff could comment on these two covers.
