    G'day fpicoli

    That is a very nice late one, does it have a spec tag? Is this a second one for your collection?
    and no it's not my preferred type, the model I post here is
    there are a few variations on these and it's mostly on the collar closer
    Best regards

    The reason I like the one I mentioned is the liner has material of the kind from these jackets M41

    I like the bottom one shown: a rarer M38 jacket. No shoulder straps and flapped pockets. I used to have one of these.

    Cheers, Ade.

    HI,

    Nice collection, you have!!!

    Thanks for all the information.

    I'm just starting my collection on US Uniforms.
    I'm still learning how to recognize the original items.
    Yes, its the second field jacket i bought.
    I also have a dress uniform of a US third army capitain,
    that i posted here, some time ago.

    I'm looking for nice examples of dress uniforms and field ones, that represents that period of history.

    Now, my pursuit is to find a affordable US M-42 airborne Jump jacket. I've found some nice ones, but all over a thousand U$.

    I also looking for a USAAF and USMC uniforms.

    Regards

    Fabio

    Hi René, I would certainly recognise my old 38 pattern jacket again if it ever showed up. It had the name "Levison" written in black ink on the back of the jacket just under the collar on the outside.

    I do have a photo of me wearing it. I keep saying I will dig out those old photos.....

    Cheers, Ade.
