Article about: Hello Here is my first thread on this Forum This was in the bottom of a seabag all crushed and smelling like mildew from almost 10' feet away. Soaked it in cold water and let it dry on a hat

    Here are some more photos of this cover showing the grommets & HBT. Sorry for poor resolution. Also the EGA insignia has a small hole in the middle where a metal EGA was mounted at some point. This usually denoted a member of the Raiders or Marine Recon, OOHRAH !
