    Default Front Seam M1 with Navy Landing Craft Personnel Markings

    Here is a pretty neat piece, a front seam M1 with Navy markings in the form of a grey/blue stripe and yellow disk. The markings are those applied for landing craft personnel, of that I am sure. Initially I thought the yellow disk was used in the Aleutians, but I now am not certain. Since I acquired the piece I have seen similar markings attributed to D-Day so now I just don't know. If anyone has information that will locate the theater where this combination was utilized I would very much appreciate it. The helmet is in excellent shape, with a Westinghouse liner also in great condition. They have been together forever. The leather chinstrap on the liner is broken near the buckle, but clearly was stretched over the brim during its use and when the liner is in the shell the leather strap fits like a glove on the steel helmet. Anyway, here it is. Hope you like it, Jim G.
