...I thought this might be of interest to this posting...




Very interesting uniform attributed to 64th Fighter Wing. This does take us back to the beginning.

Wow, nice Ike. THanks for showing it. You said the seller had no info on the owner, do you have the owner's name? I've never seen that green trim around the patches before.

What is that cord? Is it the Belgian Fourragere?

It just occurred to me it is missing some ribbons for a coming home jacket, but that is not that unusual. I like the german made DUI's.

You are correct that is a theatre made Belgian Fouragerre. If you notice the color, it seems to be a pinkish orange. Thats the second one I have like that, the other one is on a 1st Division Ike. As to where it came from. If i remember correctly it was some kind of a junk store in Missouri. Did anyone notice that the cuff buttons were replaced with buttons from a 4 pocket jacket, as were the epaulet buttons.
