    Here is a new set just in.
    This belongs to a much larger camouflage grouping.

    This dates from 1962 and is named to a USMC man .

    The ID tag inside the matching trousers .
    Note the typical HB fabric in use from the late 50s .

    It has opened up a whole new tiger can of worms .....
    I only had this pattern in the rare patrol cap which came into being in 62 , now I have just seen another ISSUE shirt in this print , so the 62 time frame is correct.
    Stunning bright print

    What stands out the most about this set is the brightness of the camo colors. You only see stuff that bright on later repro stuff but in the wrong print.

    The shot where you have it on the railings, you almost loose the set against the trees as its a perfect color match.

    Shame they stopped making it , works better than that grey tat they send you to fight in.

    So its looking like my guy was in a HML unit as they were stationed in Japan and only were on 6 month tours , this explains the uniforms from him.
    1963-64 time frame.
