IT WAS THE INSIGNIA FOR THE 101ST AIRBORNE, 506TH PIR (PARACHUTE INFANTRY REGIMENT), COMPANY "E" (ALSO KNOWN AS EASY COMPANY). MOST COMPANIES HAD DIFFERENT INSIGNIAS ON THEIR HELMET. THIS WAS DURING WW 2, I DO NOT KNOW IF THIS IS STILL DONE ON HELMETS TODAY. == Not quite. I think this answer is already on this site, somewhere. The Spade was worn on the helmets of the 506 Parachute Infantry Regiment. each battalion had a dash(-) mark placed next to the spade to identify its company. The other Regiments of the 101st Division used the Heart and Diamond. Painted markings on helmets were not common in combat. Why? If the soldier wanted to be camoflaged then that would be the surest way to get his head blown off. Usually when you see an insignia painted on a helmet it is the helmet liner only. However, some units did paint them on their helmets as verified by photos taken at the front. Some units were:
36th Infantry Division
3rd Infantry Division
34th Infantry Division, even though a veteran recently told me his unit didn't have any markings on their helmets, not even the bar on back that designated officers. Custermen
Return in Spades usually has 2 meanings that are similar. first Spades is a suit in the card deck and Spades are the Highest ranked suit. return in spades means the return is higher than what is put out or invested. you invest $200.00 but the return is in Spades $2000.00! however 'return in spades' usually means revenge. someone will return or pay back in spades to someone for something they did to them. let's say you sucker punch me in the face. i pay you back in spades by blasting you back in the face with a baseball bat. spades means you trump something or 'one up it' spades are always something 'higher.'
If you mean helmets, as in American football helmets, the answer is no. This is because they would simply be too heavy! American footballers can wear them because the game is stop/start and one player doesnt play a full game because they have attacking/defending teams. If you mean a scrum-cap, then yes rugby players probably should, if they play in the scrum, it will stop their ears from becoming deformed, but many players outside of the scrum wear them too.
