Best Answer

The spade on the helmet serves to identify that they are with the 506th Regiment of 101st Airborne Division. The other regiments used diamonds, hearts, and clubs. The spade designated the 506th Infantry Regiment. Colors were used to distinguish each particular Battalion of the 506th. The 1st Battalion used a red spade, the 2nd Battalion used a white spade and the 3rd Battalion used a blue spade.

What does it mean to have a heart on a us World War 2 helmet?

The US 101st Airborne Division sometimes painted white emblems on the side of their helmet to designate their unit. They painted the heart, club, and spade and placed a "-" at the top, left or right. These symbols were not official markings and represented the regiment within the Division and the -Dashes represented the battalion, I believe. It didn't make sense to paint white markings on a helmet while in combat. The enemy would see this and you could get shot. However, the Paratroopers also used camo netting and stripes of cloth to cover their helmets, thus covering the white insignias.
