    Thanks Alex,

    These uniforms, especially blouses, do turn up on occasion.

    Colours are still vivid on this ancient uniform.  Trousers are usually found in worn or worse conditions.

    The following 2 Legion blouses are both 2nd type M76s** Both have small differences between them.

    **( 1st type M76 are Franco era issue while 2nd type are post Franco.  2nd type have a royal crown incorporated into the Legion epaulettes embroidery, while 1st type have no royal crown).

    Blouse in first photo is an early 2nd type with elbow reinforcement, buttoned chest pockets, and no shoulder flag.

    Blouse in second photo is a later 2nd type without elbow reinforcement; Velcro is used to fasten chest pockets and has a shoulder flag.
    Also, one of the chest pockets has a split Velcro strip with a button in the centre . It is used to fasten insignia.


                                                                                                                         M76 Type 2 Dscn9614


                                                                                                                         M76 Type 2 Dscn9615
