    Default Us Jackets for Id

    Hi everyone, ive just bought a hole heap of jackets from an auction house, and the majority are US shirts/jackets and coats I can (with the aid of google) work out the majority of them but a few are giving me headaches!!

    I know im asking a lot, but I was wondering if anyone can help me identify them and give a rough age? I really have no idea about American uniforms, so I am eager to learn!!

    any help is greatly appreciated!

    A and C are Summer / Tropical "Chino" Officers service dress tunics, WW2 era.

    B is Navy Summer weight Officers tunic. Wartime I guess, but Naval stuff is not my thing....
