Grouping, Lt. Col. H.E. McGowan, 29th Infantry Division


Scarce genuine WWII US Army grouping, which belonged to some Lieutenant Colonel H.E. McGowan, made up of the following artifacts:

- an M1941 short windbreaker jacket, windproof and water-resistant cotton poplin with flannel lining, of the standard regulation type issued to every branch of service in most theaters of operations; in good, worn condition, the present field jacket retains all original buttons (apart from the first button of the right-hand side tigthening tab) and its Talon zipper in working order; labels are illegible; a pair of cloth Lieutenant Colonel rank insignias adorns the shoulder tabs and a 29th Infantry Division patch is still present on the left sleeve; name H.E. McGowan has been handwritten in the collar.

- an US M1 helmet liner, manufactured by Westinghouse; the outer surface retains most of its original paint and a Lieutenant Colonel rank insignia has been hand-painted above an adhesive name tag (McGowan); complete with cotton web suspension and neckband, leather sweatband, plain A washers, and leather chinstrap.

Nice homogeneous set.
