    This type of uniform was first produced in HBT fabric in early 1950s . Those are really rare.  This one is the following type which is made of a sateen cotton fabric.
    They are scarce as well, but trousers especially.  The US Navy would resurrect  similar trousers in the early '70 in a navy blue color issued with a lighter blue jumper.

    This is a South Korean  Marines version of the above blouse.

    It is made of HBT fabric and looks to have been made sometimes in the late '50-, early '60s . It has no hidden map pocket and no button closure at the wrist.

    I may have a pair of the early HBT trousers - need to dig them out to confirm.
