  1. some more footage of the 81st Inf Div with camo pots https://www.gettyimages.com.au/detail/video/unidentified-soldier-w-general-paul-j-mueller-riding-in-news-footage/513426523
  2. nice group, does the jungle jacket have another 9th Inf div patch on the left sleeve?
  3. That’s an interesting observation mate. I’d never thought of that until now. As far as I’m aware the Hyatt shirts are real, due to where and they came from. It is interesting an almost identical shirt bar the chest zips has surfaced as well. As I understand, one of his uniforms is on display at Westpoint or associated museum. But I’m happy to be corrected on that. Great pic of Hyatt by the way. There are far more knowledable members on here that know about ARVN airborne stuff that might jump in.
  4. Its not uncommon, I have direct embroidered shirts in my collection with names/initials written in the collar area. Also the direct embroidery on your Hyatt shirt is almost identical to the one I had so its all good plus direct embroidery varied from location to location and tailor to tailor. https://www.freetheoppressed.me/direct-embroidered-uniforms
  5. Actually, out of interest sake, after checking the old pictures of the one I used to own, this isn't the same shirt. But I believe Hyatt had multiple uniforms. As you can see, mine had the classic ARVN Abn advisor added chest zip pockets. https://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/22665-team-162-the-red-hats/page/6/&tab=comments#comment-1839834
  6. The shirt was once upon a time in my collection, its a beautiful piece.
  7. I don't think you should purchase any more shirts from this guy, as each one you have asked for advice on has turned out to be a put together. Vietnam war era uniforms, especially badged/direct embroidered jungle jackets/OG 107s can be a mine field, but as others have pointed out there are some "key combat indicators", for want of a better term that can assist in telling you if a shirt/uniform is real or in turn put together. I dare say in your 20 years of collecting helmets you have earned from your mistakes and identified the little nuances that tell you a helmet is worth having in your coll
  8. Great pic, great to see a 1st pattern shirt still being worn in '68.
  9. I was fortunate enough to pick this canvas equipment bag used by Larry M. White while he was with the JCRC between '73 and '75. Prior to his service with JCRC, Larry White served 3 tours with SOG and was 1-0 with RT Hawaii on his last tour.
  10. wow, great group of stuff there, any chance of some pics of the uniforms?
