New helmet cover?

#4
TFH have waded into the helmet cam debate by making this compulsory in their battlefield discipline SOI. Yes including staff wallahs going into their battlespace, ie visiting lash from BSN. Awesome

So H15 NO scrim, tape or anything. H16. Cabbage patch doll everywhere......
If you read the infantry briefing note that went with the no tape/scrim it meant the netting type of scrim that did nothing for braking up the shape of the helmet.

However it did recommend doing this with strips of material.

so its the cabbage patch helmet as done by several US units, makes sense and why didnt we do it sooner.

if you like the israeli sniper helmet covers (clown hats) then you can make your own using the daysack cover for that wearing a 1950's recruit beret over your helmet look.

All members of 12X on tour have to have their helmets cammed up regardless of their role or job. It is very effective in the green zone, hopefully it's something that will be kept up in the UK.

Are they using cam cream / paint also?

We did do it sooner, look at pics from 1982. Then for some reason we got told to use long grass to break up the shape. Only problem with grass is that it dies when in your helmet so has to be replaced also if you move to an urban environment you look a twit, so you take it out and have a round helmet again.

We always used to do it.

It just fell from favour slightly after the cold war as no bugger was preparing for a proper war where you would get sniped at all the time, historicaly there is a many a picture chaps coming ashore at Normandy had hessian strips all over their lids as well.

Thats why preperation for battle tells you to change cam to match the ground before taking on a new tasking.

It's a ball ache but you are supposed to do it.
