Thought I'd post what I have so far. I'll start early then run through the later ones. Still in need of a nice condition Firestone and IMP as well as the elusive Camo Westy!

Enjoy and feel free to post your comments and or corrections if I've made an error in a description.

First up is an Early Hawley Fiber Liner

A very nice sampling on all the liner configurations used in WWII. It's amazing to think that at one time there were this many different styles being used at the same time and most grunts probably didn't notice they were different. Then we(the collectors) come along 65 years later and we can pick out every single nuance right down to thread counts. ;)

Nothing like taking a hum-drum item and turning it into an exact science!
