And our unit's medic helmets have to be painted the same as the other two medic's lids.

Correctomundo.

I love the vast majority of different markings for Medics helmets, there are many variations within the 82nd Airborne alone.

Just as a matter of interest, the reason for the wide marking variation is that official regulations for Geneva Convention markings on the helmets didn't actually come into effect until 1946 / 47, so it was down to the individual units to select a pattern.

Cheers,
Ben

I have some photo's downloaded of the internet which gives a large variaty of painted markings as well as some cloth crosses on helmets.
Basically anything goes...

Yes, there was certainly a very wide variety of Medical insignia and patterns used during WW2.

Cheers,
Ben

Thanks mate.
Unfortunately the pic isn't very good, it makes it look too shiny.

Offcourse not everyone wants a helmet with divisional markings.
Here a Front seam Mc Cord, with NCO stripe.
He wants to use it for actual jumping.

(Edit, the owner has done 11 jumps allready with this helmet).
