Hi James the visor attachment is more a Royal Engineer thing and are still issued for Mine warfare training as i know the MK6 and MK6A are still issued for training with the Royal Engineers ,These would also be used by other units in the field for mine ,IED clearing but with the newer MK7 helmet in service the visors dont fit the MK7 helmets and i dont know of any replace as yet
Here is my RM photo. Looking closer the cover is actually the last type that has been sun bleached. It has the nylon label, white underside and black drawstring. The new example that came with the helmet is a darker colour. I will post photos later.
Also what would be the dates of the second type cover, would they have been used post 2007?
Very interesting to know that the Mk.6 is still in service, or did I misunderstand that?
No mistake, There's quite a few of us who still use the mk6
that is very interesting and i too am surprised to hear that bobby ,i would of thought at best you would have been issued a mk6a by now ,this scrimmed example i show was issued to a soldier of the highland regiment ,thanks for your great input to this thread ,im sure a few more of us will be surprised to read your comments ,thanks again james
very nice oli and thanks for showing here the colour differance is very apparent i see you have a slight ocd for these covers as much as i do ,thanks again james
Thanks James. I only have a few though... By the way what does the yellow flash signify on one of your covers? (also I tried to pm you but it said your inbox was full).
