    Haha...I'm finding myself to be partial to them as well! Even my wife has an appreciation for them herself.

    Here is a recent acquisition which started USMC jackets for me. It's a 6th Marine Division jacket with belt and named to a Jim Weigert, but I've not been able to locate him on the Muster Rolls.

    Very nice Rene! Thanks for sharing. That 1st Marine jacket was passed around a bit!.

    I would like a 1st Marine Division patched jacket as well. Bay State Militaria recently had a double patched 1st Marine and Marine Raider jacket recently. Marine Raider is another one on the list. It's certainly the thrill of the hunt!

    Thank you again for sharing!

    It's good to see some nice US items on here. I prefer this forum to any of the others but I seem to be drifting more towards US lately as it's a little more accessible and affordable to cut your teeth on (over here anyway).
