WW2 HBT coverall type question.

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I trying to get a set of HBT coveralls to make up a display.

I am finding two types of WW2 HBT coveralls. One's with single top pocket and ones that have two top pockets.

I need a set that would have been worn in March of 1944 by USAAF personnel .

Which one would be right for that time frame?

Thanks in advance for any help with this question.

OK never mind, I did some more research this morning and found  the 2 pocket is referred to as the "Suit, Working, One Piece, HBT 1938"

The single pocket is the "Suit, One Piece, HBT OD Special M1943"

 

So I'm thinking Phil is wearing the 2 pocket 1938 version in this pic. It kind of looks like there is a pocket on his right side.

 Can I get your thought on that?

Thank you Paul!!

The same guy who I bought the A4 flight suit from, just put up a mint M1943 version and I wanted to check before I made a mistake.
