WW2 US 79th Infantry Division helmet Stencil
The division was activated at Camp Pickett, Virginia on June 15, 1942. At the beginning of April 1944, the division reported to the Port of Embarkation at Camp Myles Standish, Massachusetts. The division arrived in Liverpool on April 17 and began training in amphibious operations. After training in the United Kingdom from 17 April 1944, the 79th Infantry Division landed on Utah Beach, Normandy, 12–14 June and entered combat 19 June 1944.
This stencil is suitable for hand painting. The picture shows how it can be applied even to a heavily corked helmet. Apply the shield first in blue, then apply the cross in white. You can either paint in the tabs or leave them in place - both options are valid for the 79th in WW2.
