Found a nice M41, it's in pretty good condition. There is a name in the collar, but it is too faded to make out, which is a shame. Insignia is in good condition, there's a little stain on the white part of the 69th SSI. Thought I would share it, I thought it was pretty neat since most 69th jackets you see are M43's.

Very nice! I have a soft spot for '41s! ;)

Very nice example, like the rest of us this is one of my favorite jackets. I like the early chevrons, don't see those too much on wartime uniforms.

Very nice!

I like the 41's also, just never kept them but one.

I have a penchant for '41s too. I've got a perfect replica which I wear as a leisure jacket...classic styling! (BTW..."Tillykke!" for winning Eurovision! ;) )

I still see a lot of jackets being worn nowadays that are similar to WW2 designs, in fact I found one of my dads jackets in the attic the other day, which looked exactly like a tanker jacket. And thank you :lol:
