    US Army World War II Jacket help

    Post by Flecktarn92 on Sun Mar 20, 2011 8:03 pm

    Hi, this seems like a dumb question but I'm not a big WWII uniform collector. I've been having a hard time trying to identify the type of jacket shown below as well as the undershirt. The only thing I found was an M-1943 but most of the ones I found are OD and not this light tan. If anyone has a source or anything that would be great. I am trying to gather all the pieces to make the proper uniform as shown below. Can someone point me in the right direction? It would be much appreciated.

    M-41 model field jacket without the pocket flaps, M-38 "Parson's" jacket if it has the flaps.

    Here's an M-41 that was used by a Captain in the 3rd MarDiv


    I've got one from a 20th AAF guy too, but don't have any pics of it up yet and can't post any until I sell some stuff and get this POS fixed..

    T shirt would have been the standard issue tank top in white or OD3.





    At the Front sells repops of both of these items. Otherwise, watch gun shows for the 41 jacket. I might have a spare tank top somewhere around here or might be able to find one.
