    Default Airborne patch (type 3) and m1943 field jacket.. What do you think?

    What do you think about this jacket and patch?
    Did already loads of research on the m1943 jacket looks like a genuine one but it's a bit strange they removed the neck label.

    The one in the pocket is washed out.. Can't read it anymore.

    Cheers

    That looks like a typical M43 Jacket issued to 101st c post D-Day.

    The SSI looks good as well.

    Nice pick up.

    Btw: Color appears different in the photo but that's because of the light issue.. Sorry for that.

    All good to go mate.

    The only question that I can think of is , was the SSI sewn on WWII or post WWII? That I cannot answer.

    Like I said the SSI looks good
