Uniform and Equipment notes

By Eric Rieth

This section is written with reenactors in mind, who have an interest in doing an impression of a soldier from the 45th Infantry Division in WWII. After 511 days in combat you may find more interesting variances in uniform and equipment than in other units. You may find differences from combat in Sicily and Italy to France and Germany. As I find more things of interest from photos and conversations with Veterans, I'll be updating this page.

 

Helmets:

From time to time I'm asked such questions as "Did they have the thunderbird on the side of the helmet?" or "how did the Medics mark thier helments?" or "Do I wear a net or not?"

 
This helmet was for sale on Ebay awhile ago. It does appear to be a WWII steel pot with the seam in front and the liner appears proper for WWII US Army as well.
