Andrei, I would love to but it is huge, I have uniforms, flight gear, tons of paper, plaques, patches enough to fill 3 large plastic bins, almost 30 years of service. Maybe one day when I have some time I'll start a thread with his stuff. Thanks for the interest, Mark

Yes, a thread would be great.

Hi ,

 

The ARVN ERDL BOONIE is not good one for me ,XUONG IB agree it

 

Cheers jerome

Bonjour,

Unfortunately crying.gif , I confirm Beo Gam assessment. It has the evil XUONG IB stamp. A lot of fakes berets, boonies and some uniforms in different camo materials (different tigers, ERDL) appeared on the militaria market straight from VN in the mid 90's.

Sorry

Valery

"The ARVN soldier in the photo is wearing an issued ARVN bonnie hat."

 

How can you tell whether the hat band is nylon or made of the same material as the hat? The only time I've seen nylon bands on ARVN cammo hats are the fakes coming out of VN. If I saw an ARVN hat with the nylon hat band I'd be VERY skeptical of it being real or "issue".

Bonsoir,

Sorry to confirm the fellow members previous answers but your tiger boonie hat is a modern copy, made as for myself in VN. The stamped mark is a pure nonsense for tiger heagears and grommets are little bit different from the period made. I never seen authentic ARVN boonie with such foliage band.

Sorry again

Valery
