Interesting picture!  How many of those are original vs. reproduction?  What repros are they using?

Here are some better pics of of the early set that I picked up. (Sorry Owen, not for sale). Belonged to a Major Allardyce who was an Army Ranger. The material is fantastic, it is very close to feeling like silk. IMG_20210124_135100_022.jpg.c2c909468717e7b4b704c1bc32359f29.jpgIMG_20210124_135100_025.jpg.0f4e13148d786b4defe58c9549173df0.jpg

Always on my quest for camouflage weirdness here is a in country produced wet weather suit that didn’t come together.

Parka is lined with para silk and pants the Okinawa production tiger print.

All pockets removed and sewn into poncho rubber legs.

Rob- You should cut a small section of the corner of the bag . Not much but just enough to get air in the bags.

 

Otherwise the chemicals in the bag will rot out the material.

 

Have seen pieces that when a collector opens the bag ( don't know why they would do that but....), and when they pull out the garments it just falls apart in their handles.

Thanks Bob, did not know that. Luckily there are already few holes already in the plastic. -Rob

Very cool Owen,

Does the Ranger ERDL also have the 1st Cav patch and Scroll on its left shoulder?
