    I found this pic of soldiers in a chow line...nothing significant except for the soldier wearing his MkIII backwards. Methinks the RSM would like to have a word with this fella if he saw him.

    Looks to be a sun helmet. Good for keeping one's head out of the sun but there's absolutely no impact protection.
