Restricted 1944 USMC Camouflage book


Recommended Posts

Received this incredible book that was made for the marines Jan 1st 1944 on camouflage.

 

A fantastic insight into weapon camo, field gear camo and helmet camo, along with hiding howitzers, boats, and yourself.

As I collect hand Camo items I think its an incredible read and thought some of you marine collectors out there would like it.

 

Has anyone else seen another one of these ?

 

The marine has written in the back his notes, as its goverment issue and restricted I wonder how many there are out there.

 

Enjoy some snippets
