WWII USMC-WR White Summer Uniform

A recent acquisition to my collection.

 

This is a USMC-WR White Summer Uniform. It requires a small amount of restoration, as it

came without the buttons or collar insignia. I had the pocket and epaulet buttons already; however,

I will have to locate the correct WWII era gilt buttons for the blouse closure.

 

I already have the correct green cap and purse to accompany it; however, I didn't dig them out

at the time I took the photos.

 

This uniform is TINY!!!!!!

Absolutely.

 

I shall restore it to its correct appearance for display purposes; however, I shall be sticking to

the green cap, which I already have, as opposed to the dress white hat which was allowed for

a very brief period of time.
