I just got this pair of KG Luke EGAs. A few weeks ago I stumbled upon an Australian-made Vandegrift jacket for sale by a forum member. Amazingly, it was named to a Marine who, in 1967, was my First Sergeant in Recon and I HAD to have it. Of course, the lapels weren't punched for screw-back EGAs so I HAD to find a pair of Aussie-made pin-back EGAs to complete it. Another forum member came to the rescue and now I have "completed" the jacket with KG Luke EGAs and here they are.....

This is the front of the Luke EGAs.

Thanks for all the kind words. I'm very happy with them and with how they look on Top Tuttle's jacket; and a special thanks to Mike for his help!
