Jacket, Field, M-1943, US Army, 38R, 1944


Nice genuine WWII US Army M-1943 cotton sateen four-pocket jacket. Featuring plastic buttons and gusseted cuffs, the new field jacket was massively issued in the ETO for the first time in late September 1944, on the occasion of Operation Market Garden.

In good overall condition, the present jacket retains all original buttons. Though hardly legible, a name, an officer's ASN and several laundry numbers are visible in the collar.

Size 38R. Inner label dated April 17, 1944.
