    Hi,

    I Got this liner today, and i really like it. This is a ww2 era Capac liner with a headband stamped 1953. The color is light green/blue.
    I wonder if they used them in the Korean war or later?

    Neat! I would venture to say this is from the time after the cease fire was in effect, and the line, or DMZ, re-established to the 38th parallel. Maybe used by the guards at Panmunjon.

    Although the markings are white, here is a pic of UN blue liners after the Armistice...

    Must be my monitor as I thought it had more of a blue tint to it. Regardless, it is unique!
