Thanks for re-uploading. This is a great reference!

Thanks for your contribution, Matt. Some of you may be interested in the book that I wrote dedicated to the British-Made items issued to the US Army:

Thanks,

Hello
Another "beanie" found this weekend near Paris (France).

The wool is of original red color. This cap has not been tainted after assembly.

On another forum, I was referred to the track of a hairdressing survival signal for pilots and members of crews lost at sea
Best regards

Great series of pictures!  I recently found this British made US pistol belt but it has the British P37 hardware.  Seems all the other British made US belts I encounter have the typical US style hardware.
