I just acquired this M1942 paratrooper jacket and wanted to show it here. The jacket is salty but all the snaps and zippers work and function well. All the zippers are marked conmar. The jacket itself is in sturdy but well used condition. I took a few photos of some areas that were field repaired I believe. The repair material is a thicker cloth almost like what the invasion flag armbands are made of.  It was a woodwork find from New York. Definitely a cool "been there" jacket that displays very well. Let me know what you think!

Awesome!  I prefer my stuff in salty condition like this jacket instead of mint!

Très belle veste !

Y a-t-il une trace de l'étiquette du fabricant dans la poche ou l'étiquette encore lisible ? un numéro de matricule ou de "Laundry" à l'intérieur ou autre marquage ? :)
