    hello all,

    despite my main focus of the moment being Asian themed armies from the Vietnam era i do have a fondness for US uniforms also.

    This set was until recently possibly my favourite jungle jacket.

    Fickle creature that i am,it has been supplanted by others however!

    In any case, i think it makes a good introduction to my US collection,more of which i will show over the coming weeks and months i hope.


    Patrick.

    Patrick,

    once again very nice stuff, I know I would be very interested in seeing the erdl jacket. You are luck to find stuff in the pockets, In the 200 uniforms I have I have found a paper or 2 & sand in some of the desert sets & a piece of gum. nothing cool like a zippo Sad
