Developed during the Korean War, the reversible Mitchell pattern camouflage consisted of a green leaf 'summer' design with a brown cloud 'winter' pattern on the underside. It was first used in 1953 as the camouflage for the Marine Corps shelter half. The Mitchell pattern helmet cover was introduced in 1959 and was used by Marines and Army troops throughout the Vietnam War. The helmet cover featured buttonholes for attaching foliage and early versions had shallow cut flaps, which necessitated an additional slot for the helmet strap.
