    If it's the 1st instance i doubt. The Amoeba pattern was first issued in 1937/38. I know there were made covers for the Ssh39 and 40. These are made up of 4 quarters so to speak. Much like on the pics. I have actually made some repro's (for German helmets) by hand from original fabric so they could also be field made. Germans made them for their helmets from suits from Soviet POW's.

    Regards, Lars

    Interesting photos James I've never seen ssh36s with neither covers or netting before.

    btw. James you should try to get a Korean film called "My Way", lots of ssh36s in it

    Cheers, Mads

    Photo was taken at Kalkin Gol.

    I put up a link to the original 1940 Soviet documentary film a few weeks ago. You can see the covers in use there.

    Cheers, Ade.
