I wanted to start a thread of original (non re-enactment or uniforms in collections) Special Forces - Green Berets in Vietnam pictures.
Please caption them as best you can, as to names, dates and locations (if known).
I'll set the ball rolling.

Were different camo patterns ever worn mixed? Like an ERDL shirt with a pair of Tiger Stripe trousers (or any other combo)?

I wouldn't say that it wasn't done, but from picture evidence I would say that it wasn't done very often.

Canteen carriers were either WW2 or Korea wars vintage. I assume that they were issued thru ARVN Q store or bought at markets.

I agree with X,
You may see the Seals at times wearing mixes but more often they would wear a camo shirt/jacket and blue jeans.

You wil also see some of the SF or Lrrps,Marine Recon guys wearing canteen covers one on each side( or more) holding the mags for the M16.The covers allowed them more ammo capacity like the BAR belts did.

Hey fellow Tiger Collectors ....
The Chap with the zippered pockets is wearing a custom made shirt.
I dont like to use RJs names for tigers but the pattern is usually seen on Flight suits.
It has the thing varient to the upper left chest .
nice custom shirt.

You probably mean JWC pattern (John Wayne Compact) :rolleyes: , indeed this pattern was widely used to make flight suit at the beginning of the war (64-65)

Thanks for having identified the pattern.
