During World War II the 36th Engineer Regiment consisted of nine combat engineer companies trained for amphibious assault and support operations. Because of this training, the unit's distinctive insignia was designed with a seahorse on a red and white shield.
Transfer Decals were NEVER used during WWII, they were all hand painted. This shield is 65mm tall and 60mm wide. It is suitable for hand painting and it is made to look hand painted when finished!
Apply the shield first in red paint. Allow to dry and remove the shield. Then apply the 'seahorse' stencil in the correct position at the top of the stencil and paint in the bottom half of the shield in white and then the seahorse in white. Allow to dry and touch up any parts in white or red.
