Unknown Theater Made Parka Possibly Mountain/Airborne Related


Recommended Posts

Found this over the weekend and I have no idea what it could be.

 

It is made out of wet weather clothing bags, a WW2 wool blanket and a piece of parachute material.

 

Parka has two exterior pockets and one interior, it is a long length going to mid thigh, hood is lined with parachute silk and the rest the WW2 blanket. No tags, written name, sizing anything on it other than the zipper is made by RIES. Approximately a size 40, I'm a 42 and could just get the zipper to touch. Hood has a draw string and it looks to be made from the tie from the wet weather bag.

 

Can anyone give me some hints as to what, where or when this is?

 

Starting off with a front and back. I'm currently resizing these images. I'll post as I get them done.
