    Pictured are four members of the Lincoln and Welland Regiment. They are wearing British Winter Snow suits and helmets covers. Did the British actually make and issue a MK II cover to go with the Winter suit?MK II Snow Covers Thumbn24

    I have never seen a tailor-made helmet cover for the Mk.II as of yet. One vet told me that they used just about anything white they could find. Sheets, doilies, liberated(stolen) US winter camo clothing that they would tear into helmet sized pieces. And if they had to, they would cut up their own issued clothing for covers.

    I like that pic!
