p-44 hbt trousers


Recommended Posts

Mike, Not sure if you wanted period pictures of p-44 uniforms in use or photos of them close up from a collection. So I am attaching photos of a set I got directly from a WWII Marine vet right out of his sea bag.

Lastly, photos showing what I have heard that was theorized to go in chest pocket of blouse (flotation bladder) and rump pocket of trousers (poncho). In my opinion, the pockets seem a bit small for both of these contents to fit well.
