    Hi Anthony

    Lucky you. At least it wasn't spray painted UN Blue!!

    If you recall during work-ups for that tour, some idiot got the idea to paint them................and "good bye" protective integrity of the helmet. Rolling Eyes

    Luckily I managed to secure a US Kevlar and Blue canvas cover. And when we were in Pendelton I scrounged a jump riggin' and pad from the USMC 2nd Anglico fellas.

    And all those Barradys ended up piled up in the Bunkers in the Visoko camp!!! Expensive flower pots!! I even mailed one home to a civvy buddy in Calgary and labelled the Postal Customs form as containing a "Blue Flower pot". He got it!! :lol:
