85th Infantry Division 'Custer Division' Helmet Stencil WW2
The 85th Infantry Division also known as "Custer Division" (named after the cavalry commander George Armstrong Custer) was an infantry division of the United States Army in World War I and World War II. It currently exists as the 85th Support Command.
This unit in WW2 used a mixture of hand painting, stencils and metal badges to identify themselves. The 'CD' was generally placed on the sides of the M1 helmet but some helmets have badges only on the front!
This stencil is the WW2 version and is suitable for hand painting, as the 'tabs' on the 'D' need to be completed by hand.
It is 45mm in diameter and is suitable for inexperienced helmet painters!
