    Hello,

    In an military Store I found These two french Jackets. I think they are the Same Model but they have differences If you can See on the photos. Can somebody explain the differences? Are they Different Time Periods?

    Hi,

    Theses are french 1947 pattern greatcoat.

    I don't know why the first one is missing the half belt.

    These replaced both US greatcoat and Vichy Era M-1941 greatcoat.

    They were phased out by mid 1970s.

    Regards

    Thank you, Mellon, for your help.

    But I think they shortened the greatcoats because the Overall Length is about 80cm from bottom to top.

    Maybe for civilian use or did the army shortened their greatcoats for a Special purpose?
    But that, I think, we Will Never find out.
