    I don't believe there is such a thing as a labelled cover,my theory is they were manufactured in China,and will remain a mystery!!

    I'm still desperately trying to find a decent ref pic of these covers in combat use!!!

    here's a photo of a Saudi soldier with camo cover on his M1 steel helmet, looks like a Mitchell pattern desert side out.
