    US WW2 81mm Mortar Marking

    Hi All,

    I am repainting a US WW2 81mm mortar and wondered what marking were painted on it? I have seen some with a white strip on the tube, others with two horizontal lines, i guess for clamping the collar between. Any info gratefully received and if you have any photos, even better. thank you in advance.

    Are you repainting the mortar tube, baseplate, etc, or just the shell? Pictures in this case would be very helpful, too.

    Thank you...I should have been more specific...I was trying to find out markings on the mortar tube...I have seen some just plain green and others with white strip or a narrow "T". If any one knows I would be grateful.
