  1. Thank you. RIP James Martin. One of my father's men Right of the Line Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  2. Despite its use, it is still the RN 25334 pattern commercial duck hunter camouflage that was used, and with the price, still a win for me. I just don't feel as bad about taking the rank and tape off! Thanks for the info! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  3. Pics of the camo and the link to the thread Thanks https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Eusmilitariaforum%2Ecom%2Fforums%2Findex%2Ephp%3F%2Ftopic%2F174262-1950s-German-Camo-for-US-Forces&share_tid=174262&share_fid=54704&share_type=t Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  4. https://m.ebay.ie/itm/VTG-M-1951-ARMY-RANGER-CAMO-COTTON-FIELD-CAP-HAT-USA-SIZE-7-/362030157209?_mwBanner=1&_rdt=1 Here's the ebay link. It honestly reminds me of a cold war era German camo from the. I recall a picture of US LRRPs in Europe wearing it. It's on a thread here somewhere, I'll try to conjure it up Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  5. Came across an eBay post for an M1951 field cap with a camouflage pattern painted on it. Was this a common practice, and if so, I would love to see more examples. Thanks Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  6. UPDATE: Examined under stitching of the rank and US Army tape, little to no color difference. I suspect they were just thrown on there to add to the appeal. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  7. However, it was a neat camo find, and reasonably priced so I'm not too worried. Thanks for the feedback! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  8. My thoughts also, especially during the time period the seller said his father was in Vietnam (1964), I wouldn't expect rank to be on a uniform at all. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  9. Recently purchased this uniform. I must say the US Army nametape and rank seem kind of off to me. I would appreciate the feedback on it! Thanks Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  10. Snagged these bad boys off ebay the other week and thought I'd share. 1965 dated and in great shape. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  11. I'm looking for good references (pictures, owned uniforms or otherwise) of OG-107 uniform groupings of special forces advisors from Vietnam. Anyone's help is welcome and much appreciated. Thanks Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  12. Does anyone know a good reference for equipment (field gear, uniforms, etc) used by US advisors in Vietnam right before and at the first influx of US involvement in Vietnam. I have found "uniforms & equipment of u.s. military advisors in vietnam: 1957-1972 (schiffer military history) " but honestly would prefer something I don't have to buy. Thanks Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  13. Im looking for a beo gam patrol cap like the ones worn by advisors in early Vietnam. I've been looking on eBay for quite a while now and have come up with nothing. Anyone know of somewhere that makes repriductions? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk
  14. I definitely see that now. Honestly this is a learning lesson for me, because I paid no attention to the angle of the pockets, despite knowing veitnam era jackets had slanted ones. I was so caught up in the fact that they were modified that it went right over my head! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk
  15. Doing more research, I found a thread for modified military jackets on here, and one of the posts was a similar jacket from the 80s used by Delta in Operation Acid Gambit in the 80s. Only difference is the blood type written above the breast pocket.
