Very nice collectible items you both have,I wasn't aware there was a Jungle Camo type jacket?also how does this differ from the ETO type HBT Jacket worn in the early days following Normandy Invasion?............
Naa it's the regular army type that was withdrawn from the ETO, due to friendly casualties
I heard that the reason was not friendly firing.
These were experimental from the army, and they have to use up the fabrics.
Most of them went to the Pacific.
I might be wrong.
Very nice kit guys! I always wanted a set of these when I collected US gear back in the 80's.

Bravo Taka and Rene some very fine camo there and I must agree with Phil they look to be in pristine unissued well stored condition wold be very hard to upgrade to anything nicer IMO.
Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.
Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!
Taka you lucky boy finding a 1st pattern in this condition,I will keep on dreaming maybe one day...........
