82'd Airborne 508th PIR Regimental HQ Demolition Platoon Helmet Stencil
The 82'd Airborne Division use of stencils was sporadic until after WW2. However this stencil was used on 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment (PIR) Regimental Head Quarters (HQ) Demolition Platoon Helmets.

Be aware the 82'd did not use decals in WW2 they either hand painted or used stencils to add their insignia to their helmets. There are several surviving genuine helmet examples displaying this insignia.
This stencil is the same one as the stencil for the508th Parachute Infantry Regiment (PIR) Regimental Head Quarters, so it can be used for both!
This can be hand painted and is easy to apply. The 'tabs' on the circle need to be done by hand as does the black dot within the circle and the 'DEMO' text. You can get stencil instructions here.
