Black helmet band thingies

Hello,

something has been bothering me for a while now... what are those black rubber bands on the bottom of helmets i keep seeing? In particular airborne dudes. How do you do it/whats it made from?

I stapled an old "Old Orleans" balloon to mine, unfortunately bright yellow isn't popular military fashion this year so it had to be removed sharpish.

Scarletto, I have heard that as well, part of your E&E kit I believe?
Quite correct Blob, as the fact that Liquorice is good for providing a quick burst of energy or at least keeping you regular? Strange but lets face it,looking at some helmets, some troops cant wait to eat the stuff.

Make sure it's a pink one for the full rooster-alike effect.
