Mitchell Pattern Shelter Half

Issued by the Marine Corps, the Mitchell pattern Shelter Half was made from water-repellent cotton duck and was identical in design to the Army's olive green version. The reversible camouflage consisted of a green leaf 'summer' design with a brown cloud 'winter' pattern on the underside. Beginning in 1959, the Mitchell camouflage pattern was also used for the reversible M1 helmet cover.
