J018374 (IJN) 2ND PATTERN NAVAL LANDING FORCE HELMET COVER. The standard pattern, padded cover for the type 90 helmet, issued to Japanese SNLF troops until 1945. Its olive drab, water-resistant cloth exterior is comprised of six machine sewn pieces, meeting at the apex of the crown and gathered along their tunnel-looped base by an adjustable tie string. A 2nd pattern, machine embroidered yellow anchor, on an olive drab vertical oval backing, is machine sewn to the front of the cover. To the interior, its off-white liner mirrors the six-piece construction to the exterior. Unmarked. Superb, untouched original condition and comes with a hand written tag from the vet who brought it back from Kwajalein atol (also are a few other small paper items). Nice!
