Jacket, HBT (Herringbone Twill), US Army, 42R, 1942


Very nice genuine WWII US Army 'Special' HBT overshirt, featuring two buttons under the collar for attaching the antigas woolen hood. This type, featuring two breast cargo pockets, was both worn as a combat jacket and as a utility jacket in the ETO, particularly in Normandy.

In mint condition, NOS, this jacket retains all its metal buttons. Size 42R and dated April 8, 1943.
