Hello,

 

i have been looking for some informations about the Cape Gloucester tab, i have searched on the forum, but i haven t seen a forest green uniform with the tab in wear.

How come we see so few Gloucester tabs on the 1 Marine Division tunics?

when was the tab issued?

 

Cheers

 

HCMT

There is a photo in the book voices of the pacific that shows Roy Gerlach wering the tab. I dont know what the official policy was but you dont see many photos 3105AB37-A896-4168-B892-3815E015D039.jpeg
