Korean War Officer Uniforms

Yes. 

 

They wore issued type m43, m46 and m50s as well as any private purchase patterns.  I can't say if they were more or less common than a chocolate 4 pocket.  I see both used at about the same frequency.

Thanks Rob. So the only difference between the officers and the EM on a Korean War Ike is that the rank bars are on the shoulder for the officer and the collar discs are on the collar for the EM? No cuff lace or anything else to distinguish an officer from an EM? The jacket I have is a 2nd Div M-50. It looks completely like an EM's Ike but for the Lt. bars on the shoulder. Does that sound correct? Thanks very much for your help.

You see the same differences as you would on a WWII set up of an ike. Officers will have US on the collar and branch insignia on the lapels. Yes, rank on the shoulders. By this time both EM and Os wore DUIs on the shoulders.

There are two examples I have that may help you.
