Response to I would think they were put on later

The studs on the masks were indeed placed by the station tailor after the mask was issued.

The fitting of the mask was done by putting on the helmet, placing the mask in the desired position and determining the exact location where to sew on the two strips with the studs.

Early examples had two studs directly attached to the mask itself. This was done in the same way as described above.

Cheers, Toine
