Hi folks

 

Ive been re-enacting long enough for my M41 to wear through at the cuffs like the originals i've seen!  Has anyone seen any period repairs to the cuffs that may have been done in the field or by a local tailor?

 

Cheers

 

Roy

Or roll them to the inside and sew them.

This is how one of my original M41's has been repaired. It seems they added a trim made from another jacket, as the type of fabric is identical but the color slightly different.

Nice,  I have a bit of cotton tape which is almost identical to the tape from a ammo bandolier,  that will make a good field repair,  

 

BTW the table turned out great!

I have seen original period repairs done with poplin like the example in post 4, and also with some HBT tape.

Yep, missed that comment. Seems like it shows up a lot on the USAAF ones, perhaps because they had more leather laying around?

Possible

 

I tend to see it done on AAF jackets from the CBI
