WW2 - Clothing - Uniforms - Footware
A great looking, neat mint, HBT shirt/jacket with the rare "Defense Corps Co. A" patch and PFC stripes. This outfit was located in Bradford County, Pa. and was the only unit to wear this patch, so probably only 100 or so of these patches were ever made. They were in existence from 1942 to 1943. Tough one to find!
It ain't mint and it's missing the belt, but does this jacket sing. Just the right amount of wear and repairs for one that saw service. Main zipper is a "Talon", while the small zipper for the knife pocket is a "Serval". There are two sets of ink stamp markes inside. T7057 & N3342. I wish I had a name to go with it, but sorry, I don't.
This suit is as pictured in the "Government Issue Collector's Guide, Vol.II", red cover on page 179. This suit is in great shape, with the rubber in supple condition. These suits were issued to gas decontamination teams. The tag is gone, but is in a large size. It is not mint, but I think it is at least a very good plus to excellent.
Nice set consisting of HBT Jacket, Trousers, Belt/Buckle and Field Cap. The jacket is a size 38R, the trousers are approx. 31W by 30L and are missing one 13 star button on left rear pocket. There is a nice dark tan belt with buckle and a great looking HBT Field Cap around a size 7 to 7 1/8, cause it fits my bald head! Great looking set, all ready for a display.
