I recently found this memorandum issued by the 29th ID Division Commander, MG William Sands, describing the proper method for marking 29th Infantry Division helmet liners in 1949. 

 

 

 It may be a useful guide to help tell apart WWII helmet liner markings from post war markings.

Pretty neat Al. Thanks :)

 

John--I'm going to send you high res electronic copies of the originals and some other documents for the late 40s from the 29th for your files when I get in tomorrow.
