    Awesome! I imagine that even the unexposed fabric will have faded slightly from age and chemical reactions, so I'm picturing the green as slightly darker back in the day.

    OK, Thom... this was good enough to get me out of my semi-retirement for a comment or two.  Congratulations Wink

    You got this from the Polish guy on eBay, yes?  I took a look at it and was impressed with the original looking condition, but I couldn't find anything that matched it.  Granted, I don't have a lot of source material to look at and I'm sure there were quick-and-dirty variations during the end of war chaos.

    gnashernz seems to think this isn't a legit piece.  I'm curious to know more.  Have you posted this to WAF?  Those guys will have educated opinions for sure.

    Steve

    P.S. obviously I'm not dead Wink Just insanely busy for the last year+

    Well for starters its not HBT which is what the only examples are made of, this must be the only one in existence of this smooth cotton, the construction is different - yet you think this good?
    The RB stamping looks to have been pieced together by individual stamps rather than it being one actual stamp, the M45 does not look right either, I'm thinking its been given a collector terminology rather than it being a depot stamp.
    Put it on WAF, love to hear the comments.
