Assault Jacket + Invasion Equipment


Recommended Posts

Hi gang,

 

I finally managed to add an M7 Assault Gas Mask Bag (complete with M5 Gas Mask), M1926 Life Preserver Belt and a Gas Detection Brassard to the Assault Jacket I recently posted. I just thought that I'd share a picture of how the setup looks now:

I still need to migrate the equipment to a full mannequin, but this will be done once I am in the new house!

 

Regards,

Ben.

Hi guys,

 

Thanks for your new, positive comments about this display. I'm working on moving this to a full 4th ID mannequin, which I hope will be completed in the next couple of weeks.

 

Bart, I'll get some shots of the T5 set up this afternoon.

 

Regards,

Ben.

Someday I will get one of those vests. Nice dispaly!

I collect pre-1948 US Navy rates, and WWII US Navy enlisted uniforms and equipment.


Wanted: items related to VPB-103, USN jumpers with USMC SSI and USMC uniforms with navy insignia.

Subsystem4 you say someday you'll get an invasion vest. I wish your dream comes true! I've been collecting since 1944, and have never seen one first hand, much less available for sale. We live in hope. Very fine invasion display. Jack Angolia

In theory, you could put the belt under the jacket. (and the mask bag as well). Thus the jacket could be ditched and the guy would still have some bouancy. But even the guys that did that had issues as the quick release straps swelled in water and were harder to undo that expected.
