    Funny that the US HBT's are not popular, used in most of the major US campaigns in WW2!

    Rene these HBT WW2 jackets are very collectable, and prices are rising. Re your comment,... "people" are wrong.

    I have a mint 1st pattern, yours would be a 2nd pattern.

    Actually the New Zealand 3rd Division in the Pacific issued these jackets in 1943 to troops.

    I like the way you can always pull out an example to illustrate your point. That's depth in a collection!

    One of obvious clues apart from shape and style of the pockets (gussets and cut corners) is the shade of green. The early ones until 1943 were Sage green. Then Olive drab came in with the revision in 1943.
