Hood, Wool, OD, Protective, US Army, Size M, 1942


Genuine WWII US protective wool hood, initially developed for protection against gas, but often used for protection from the cold.

It was therefore widely used during the winter of 1944, especially in the vicinity of Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge. A set of buttons allows the hood to be attached to the shirt and jacket, or to the HBT coveralls. 

The present hood retains its original label, dated June 1, 1942, size Medium.

With moth holes and a tear.
