I believe there is a connection between the markings on the jump smock sleeves and the drop container. I believe the scenario portrays paras on an exercise/training mission as other containers would have markings associated with the section of paras to match and identify the type of contents in the container. In combat jumps the markings would be different for each mission. That is my guess as there is not a lot of information out there on drop container markings.
