Recently, I was watching footage of US troops stationed in West Germany in the 1960s, I’m guessing the footage ranged between 1965 and maybe as recent as 1970, and noticed what seemed to be odd colors in the helmet covers. They didn’t appear to be the Mitchell pattern helmet cover. Now the film footage was “aged” a bit, but the helmet covers didn’t seem to be consistent with the Mitchell pattern in color or pattern. Was there a different helmet cover available in the US Army at the time (guessing footage as being near Fulda 1967-1969), or was it just the film?
