    Arvn Jungle Jacket? Empty Arvn Jungle Jacket?

    Post by Gulf91 Mon Jan 02, 2012 2:13 pm

    Anybody please got a good source of pics of Arvn troopers on the net?

    Reason i ask is while having a good tidy up ive come accross a Jungle jacket which i believe to be original but with a weird patch arrangement and being sized as XS thought it could possibly be Arvn.

    No patches left just traces,the jacket is well faded and the removed insignia stands out consisting of only 1 name/branch tape over the right pocket-slanted not straight and on the left shoulder is a shield shape outline with a square under this.

    Anyone got any ideas please?

    Thanks

    You should show a photo.
    ARVN uniform items are very distinctive and are easily id'd.

    Will post some up ASAP.

    Arvn was my 1st thought given the size as XS and the insignia placement doesnt look US to me?

    As Bob states a true ARVN jungle jacket is very different from a US one.
    During NAM there was many different placements of patches that did not conform to the norm.

    Not claiming for 1 minute that it is Arvn,just a shot in the dark by myself given the small size and strange insignia placements.

    Plus wishful thinking of course Laughing

    If anything, it was probably a party / drinking shirt, for a US guy.
