Thought this thread needed a fresh shot to bounce it back to the top. The new Vietnam camo corner in the shop.vncamo.jpg

Just came across this great early Vietnam photo.

Taken in 1964 you can just make out his very early tiger stripe pattern shirt, also the US made early cowboy hat.

Neat photo just wanted to share it. It's from the stars and stripes website.

Hi O,

I think there was another from the original Stars and stripes article but it wasn't as good, but check their website, there are lots of other archive Vietnam stories.

What is exciting is he appears to be wearing first pattern tigers .........

And I am wondering is this may be Peterson who my set came from .

 

Good eye AG .

Hi Bob ,

What a wondeitul group of tigers in the camo corner. Some great pieces !!

I have attached a picture of a shirt I have. It is small , maybe medium weight. I was wondering what pattern it may be or is it just an obscure pattern. I believe it to be real.

Regards, Mitch

Hi,

I thought I would post something a little different. It is a teenage size souvenir tiger flightsuit. It is a little over 4 feet high, so maybe for a kid around 5 feet. It is made with a material that is the same weight and feel of the 2 gold boonies I have. It has the smaller brass YKK zippers. It appears unworn. Thanks for looking.

Mitch

Your tiger shirt is monster tiger and its real.

So far the matching trousers has not been found ............but they will turn up some day .

 

I used to own the RON flight suit many years ago ...and it good to see an old friend.

Here is one my complete sets, came from B-53 veteran widow with jungle jacket and and original documents. Jacket has fours straight pockets. I think sleeve snaps are custom made but some cammo expert can tell if for sure. -Mikko post-5424-0-89231500-1364033809.jpg
