After about 20yrs of searching I finally got 2 pairs of UDT swim trunks. Both named to the same owner and as can be seen, both have the pretty rare subdued UDT 13 patch. I have never see trunks like these before but the guy I got them from was in UDT 13 and did 2 tours to VN along with the recovery of Apollo 12 and 13.

This is the kind of stuff that gets worn to threads, lost or reused, and therefore hard to find. Nice find.

I think its to hide the original owners name.
Sweet set of trunks.

What’s the point of posting 50 year old shorts and hiding the name ?
