Description
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing

An extremely scarce version of the jungle jacket being of the second pattern, however manufactured without epaulettes. There are four distinct models of jungle jacket employed during the Vietnam conflict. However, there are many transitional examples that lay in-between each of the models. This was probably due to the overlapping of various orders.

The jacket itself is in good used condition and is faded to a nice sage colour. There are the usual slight areas of abrasion and clearly the airman who wore the jacket undertook a lot of manual work as the area of the lower pockets has frayed somewhat over the buttons and has literally worn through in a few places. However this adds to the overall interest of the jacket. There is a full set of Vietnamese produced insignia including the US Airforce tape and the name ‘SHORTT’. There is a Master Aircrew members’ wing to the upper breast as well as a Master Sergeant’s insignia to either arm, again of cut edge and probably Vietnamese manufacture. The label to the rear reads ‘Regular Medium’ and is a little faded but fully legible. Also, the instruction label remains intact as well as the small label with the DSA code number. A highly interesting Vietnam jacket. Interestingly although the vast majority of jungle jackets issued to Airforce members had shortened sleeves, this has the original full length sleeves. Code: 52506
