VIETNAM BEOGAM PATTERNS


Recommended Posts

There is a close up view from the A-L stamped size tag.

I have no idea what the hand-stitched 2A means its maybe a kind of laundry mark ?

I have never seen a tag like that , it could be a laundry mark .

I think it is cool for sure , unique to say the least .

Not sure if these have been posted already, but as mentioned in another thread Life Magazine has recently posted several thousand photos from their archives on the internet.

 

When you search their site, put in your "keyword" in the search box but make sure you include "source:Life".

 

Here's a couple examples. (A couple of these feature Cpt. Vernon Gillespie Jr., November 1964)

Hi all

Well I havd a good couple of days hunting around for booty .

I have been working in the mills and found a ton of stuff mostly Vietnam related and other war stuff ,but I did come upon these 3 different BEO pieces .

Firet up is a well used shirt with the single bust of gloty buttons that has had its sleeces cut by orginal owner .

It also has his last 4 numbers of the SS # to ths inside .

I love the mature fade on this piece .

Next up is a pair of trousers in a slightly heavy weight fabric .

These have plastic buttons and have 6 pockets .

The pattern is slightly different from the shirt in that some of the shapes are different

A copy of a copy so to speak .

Full shot of the shorts .

I wonder who cut these up ???

Most likley in the States for fun .

Jerome ,

Your new hat is a common hunting type .

In all the vintage clothing stores you can find these .

The material is of a lower quality but fades just like the Nam stuff.

A dead givaway is the little piece of cloth sewn across the front , a typical hunting hat design .

These hats come in all colors and fabrics from Plaid to international orange .

All I can say is, "FABULOUS!"

 

My vote for the most embarassing photo from the Vietnam War...
