    Might be a USMC Vandegrift jacket.
    If it is there should be a stamp on the lower back between the wool and the liner.

    Not USMC.
    Wouldn't have the insignia holes in epaulettes if it was US.

    No stamps,markings,labels i can see.

    The buttons if original to the blouse look like WW2 British types.

    Its not like other French BDs i have seen in the fact that the colour(not that it shows up well on my rubbish camera)is a Chocolate brown and not a shade of OD.

    When bought Commission Control was mentioned but i have been unable to find any info or pics regarding this.
