M42 Camouflage Mask Veil - Fall Oak Leaf

Stock Status: Out of Stock

Camouflage masks, commonly referred to as the sniper veil, were used by German army and Waffen SS units during World War 2. The first issue face veils were manufactured with meticulous attention to detail and were held in place by an elasticised band, similar to the ones used on other head gear like the gas mask. When not in use they could be draped back across the helmet, spun to the side of the helmet, or simply worn around the neck. This helped the veil from hindering vision when rapid movement was required. This option was not available to the non-elasticised version. The non-elasticised veil was usually field made so they were far less intricate, made using whatever material was available, and were often lesser quality as a result.

This is a M42 Camouflage mask, a reproduction based on the version used in World War 2. It is made of cotton blend material, in fall oak leaf pattern, with a two point sting cord tie. Has a slightly rough appearance.
