Ideal for keeping the knees dry in the Jeep Ken!  :)

Hi McDuff  ;), yep I bought it for use in the Jeep, not so worried about the knees, more concerned about the part I sit on being warm and dry . . . . . . .  need to look after the crown jewels . . . . . . . . .   :love:

Wow, that looks brand new.

Hi Mikie, as I said there's no sign of wear but it actually didn't photograph as nice as it looks in the flesh, look at the close-up of the material around the label it's like that all over. ^_^

Great looking coat. Nice to see a datastamp and not the more common datatag...

Hi Simon,  well it's good to know your still floating around here on the forum. Hopefully Beast can tell you if his father was in the 319th Med, would be interesting to hear more of his service. ^_^

Yes I would be very interested to know what Beast knows about his Fathers service, especially his time in England prior to going across the Channel.

Apologies for jumping into your post Beast, but did your Dad take any photos when he was in England prior to going across the channel? I am assuming he was in 319th Medical Btl?


Hi Simon,

I will look through dad's photos again, but I think the majority were taken in France. You are correct about my dad serving in the 319th Medical Bn. He was assigned to Company A.

Thanks, I would be very interested to see if he took any while in England. The 319th Med Batt were stationed near my home while in England. Of course they were only here for a few short weeks.

Thanks for replying.

Best wishes,
Simon.
