    Default US Army 1st Patt HBT Jacket

    G'day all

    Seeing I pulled out my black one here's the one underneath
    Unusual SGT rank applied, but is the real deal.
    I'll see what else I can drag out before the Wifey gets home

    Rene I want your magic hat, I think it is similar to Frosty the Snow Mans who comes to life.

    Nice HBT, Rene.

    Painting stripes on the sleeve was a regular occurence in the US Marines.........

    Perhaps it was normal in the Pacific Theater. If there were no correct insignia
    in stock, a guy might have to wait for months to get some.........

    Nice jacket Rene. And I also drag out my stuff when the wife is away, though I think you may have more.

    I have a similar jacket, but with out the stripes, and it also has the 13 star buttons. I also have a one piece HBT coverall with the same buttons.

    Here in the States, years ago, HBT items were scarce and brought in a high $$. That seems to have changed lately; I've noticed that HBT pieces on e-Bay are going for
    little $$, if they sell at all. Not sure what happened. Maybe someone found that lost HBT wharehouse.
