WW2 6th ID PTO Camo Lid

Recommended Posts

I was able to grab this early produced m1 helmet shell with a nice 2 tone PTO camouflage and heat stamp of 39A 2. It crudely unit marked to the 6th Infantry Division. Does anyone here have any period photos of a similar camo in use with the 6th ID? Ive been looking for photos with no luck.

Very cool... I've nothing to add, but am interested! One of my students had a grandpa that was in the 6th and I helped him put together a uniform and restored a helmet from parts for him. Very interested to see the star on it!


Looking for the following:

452nd and 447th Bomb Group items

Anything 12th Armored- especially uniforms

155th Assault Helicopter Company, Camp Coryell, or Ban Me Thuot Vietnam items[/center]


WWII US Navy Uniforms from the Battle Off Samar: USS Johnston DD-557, USS Hoel DD-553, USS Samuel B. Roberts DE-413, USS Heermann DD-532, USS Dennis DE-405, USS John C. Butler DE-339, USS Raymond DE-341, USS Fanshaw Bay St. Lo, White Plains, Kalinin Bay, Kitkun Bay and Gambier Bay...

Nice, the 6th ID is not a unit you see many marked helmets for, super rare and a camo!

Yes it was on eBay for a short time. I was able to trade for the helmet (I saw it on a different site) and I didn't notice it was on eBay until we were halfway done negotiating.

Sadly it's just the shell. I am thinking of getting a pair of early war flat buckle chinstraps and a beat up Hawley liner to display it. It does however have a faint ring on the inside from shaving residue.

 

 

I'll get some pics of the red marking for you stealthytyler
