    Nice Nick,

    My M-1C has the same twill cover although mine is of earlier vintage. I do like the the bug repellent and am trying to locate one for my display.

    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?

    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:
