Jacket, HBT, US Army, Billy Lierly, 86th Infantry Division


Nice genuine WWII US Army HBT overshirt, featuring two buttons under the collar for attaching the antigas woolen hood. This type, which retains the two breast cargo pockets of the previous versions, was worn as a combat jacket and as a utility jacket in the ETO, particularly in Normandy.

In good, worn condition, this jacket retains all its original buttons. Size 36R. Partial service number L1675 has been inked in the collar.

The present jacket comes directly from the family of Billy Francis Lierly. Born on August 31, 1923 in Gilman City, Missouri, he served with the 86th Infantry Division during WWII. He passed away on November 11, 2007.
