    Some more small bits, mostly Desert DPM and 1 MTP pouch.

    Osprey triple magazine pouch (3X2) with strange MOLLE strap arrangement on the back, Osprey legpanel, modular PRR pouch and modular PRR pouch with additional holder for a GPS module IIRC.
    The Flecktarn brassard is of course not British.

    And for some reason the rarest British things I find are all from here in Holland.

    I bought this helmet just to get the cover, which officially shouldn't be on this helmet type, though I've seen other people encountering them on turtle helmets too, soldier's ingenuity I guess.
    And judging by the wearpattern it's been used on the helmet for quite a while.
    It's an early type of Mk6 cover with just 2 elastic bands, only seen on early ones, and according to the contractcode it should be from 1982 or 1983.
    The helmet itself was optional for me, I hope to find a really early Mk6 sometime, and then this cover will be put on that, and the liner might go to another of my British helmets which has a broken liner in it.

    No idea what the yellow paint or the number 33 on the shell should signify.

    Still, I might just keep it together as an original used set.
