    Here is a photo of a jacket that belongs to NKOMO...I found the photo in my photo files so I am putting it up here for him. Any clues to where this one is from?????

    Appears to be of Thai manufacture, although they normally use two buttons per pocket as per original jungle fatigues. The biggest giveaway for me is the characteristic black 'twigs' which also appear on an issue Thai assault vest I have.

    Thanks for the id guys! I bought it on a whim and have only $20 in it. We agre that it is Thai made. NOW, anyone want to venture a guess on what time period. The jacket has no tags and has never had any ever.

    Possibly mid-late 1970's - this is because of the use of the rimmed button. By the early 1980's uniforms out of Thailand were using copies of the US type 'dish' button. Also use of rip-stop material would put it immediately post VN period (conjecture).
