I like this figure and it will be a great entry. But Simon, what's that on his left shoulder?

thanks Mario
in reference to the left soldier, I will be painting this figure as a member of the 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment 101st Airborne Division. The 502nd took it upon themselves to tie a piece of gauze/bandage to their left shoulders as a form of regimental identification for the jump into Normandy as referenced in the photo. So this is my gauze to be painted



cheers
