Better pic of the M1 "steel pot" helmet...

Remember the other day I was talking about helmets?

Well, I found a better pic of the M1 helmet...in it you can see how the camouflage cover was used over the steel shell and then kept in place with the fiber liner. This was not issued until after WW2 and therefore not reflected in the Van Johnson picture. Oh yeah, there is a hot chick involved here too...I believe Van would have approved..

Thanks to the Everyday, No Days Off blog for posting the pic and reminding me of my remiss in this matter.
