Emblem on pith helmet and 75th Division patch.  They look very similar except one of the colors is black on the emblem on pith helmet and blue on the 75th patch.  And then the GI's appear to have wrote the number 75th in the emblem on the pith helmet just as there's a 75 on their own patch.  Just an observation once I looked at the 75th Division's patch.

That is real neat, and should make tracking down the guys easier
