I wish to extend my congratulations to you, Mario, for your outstanding acquisitions.
Your khaki blouse with the branch colored epaulets is 1901 Spec. 551.
To my eye, your second khaki blouse without the branch colors appears to be a
USMC blouse. A Philippine/tropical blouse with two pockets may, or may not have
a single seam extending down from the collar on each side, as well as an internal
belt, and relief cuts in the rear 'dress'.
A USMC enlisted man's blouse has the characteristic dual pleats/seams running
down from the collar to the top pockets, pleated upper pockets with pointed flaps,
and French cuffs. With the exception of the patch and buttons that's a dead ringer.
By-Golly, I surly do love all those stamps! Crisp and ledgeable.
All those colors appear vibrant and not a moth bite to be seen!
Post Edit The forum's software changed my original post which read "moth n.i.p."
(without the periods) to "moth Japanese"; therefore, I have edited it to read "bite".
