    Thanks for the welcome Richie. I used to collect U.S. uniforms, weapons, and field gear of WWI and WWII once upon a time. My posting was just a hunch, merely a possibility to be considered. All y'all know so much more about the subject of RKKA uniforms, gear, etc. than I do.
    My interest now lies in taking my RKKA reenacting and living history impression as far as I can within my means and knowledge. It is an impression, at least on my side of the pond, that has for too long been a stepchild in the field of historic interpretation.
    All of you and your postings have really expanded my knowledge a great deal.

    Default M43 Gymansterka & Pilotka - US HBT?

    I am unable to remember if I have ever brought this up here, if so, I have an addendum...

    In this photo from my collection, this man is wearing a small sewing shop/homespun M43 made from what seems to be US HBT.

    A colleague in Riga has come up with a pilotka in what seems the same.

    Any of you all seen anything like either?

    It is indeed US HBT cloth.

    Here is a well known colour photo of a female soldier wearing a HBT Gym at the US - Soviet link up at Torgau.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Philippe, I have merged the two threads in one now. I had forgotten about it too. I even mentioned the famle soldier in the first thread... Mine and Richie's advanced years are to blame

    Cheers, Ade.
