    Hi Nick, nice lid, what date is the camo cover, mine is dated inside, ie the inside of the cover
    cheers mate

    the cover is an early twill cover before they started using DSA numbers so you're looking at early 60's.

    Nice helmet, the bug repellent is a nice touch. I must get myself a nice Vietnam era helmet one day.

    I must say though that I'm dubious about any of the helmet covers that exist now ever saw Vietnam for real. I doubt they would last a year of action, tropical heat, monsoon rain etc. A lot of photos I've seen show rather battered and filthy covers.

    Have you any that you can actually say were in the 'Nam, Nick?
    cheers mate

    you can find VN era lids that still have their original covers i have atleast 3 that i can say for sure but they dont come along that often.

    Nice lid The insect repellent is original, I have a bottle myself. There is an army surplus store about 10 min from my house. The owner is a Vietnam vet. He has a box full of the 60's dated insect repellent for like $4.00 a bottle!

    Here's mine:
    cheers mate nice lid
