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.

Call a spade a spade. It just means to tell it like it is. Don't use euphemisms.

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.

Depending on exactly what you mean there are two answers. If you mean a helmet as a hat for you character: go to my Roblox, then character. From here find the helmet in your hats and click wear. If you mean wear a helmet you found in game: Touching the helmet should put it on automatically.

There is no Kate Spade Sloane Street Collection. Assuming that you mean Kate Spade Sloane Square, it is a flagship store that opened in 2011, so the store is about 3 years old.

The first hiding place is in the cave where Giant Gold sometimes is (You need a helmet). Then in the other cave with the Bomber House through the gate where you need 5 Spade and Club pieces. (You will need a helmet and a Light Bomb)

Say what you mean and mean what you say. Give it to them straight! This is an emphatic way of saying "Call a spade a spade," which means "Don't use any fancy language or flowery terms to try to make the situation look better than it is." "Bloody" is a mildly offensive curse word used in the UK and Australia.

The Broncos original uniforms had white and yellow jerseys with brown pants and a brown helmet. That changed in 1962 to white pants, orange helmets, and orange and white jerseys. Current team pants are white with blue or white or orange jerseys and a blue and orange helmet.
