PLEASE NOTE: THIS COMMUNITY MEMBER, SADLY, HAS PASSED AWAY
once again,congratulations on a superb collection of items.
You have some remarkable items.
"Duckhunter" is quite a fascinating field.
The variations of the main US commercial items and then the CISO/S.Vietnamese/Korean/Hong Kong..etc made examples make it all the more compelling and a rich collecting avenue.
i have a few examples of the major US made garments, as well as a couple of foreign made examples, but for now here is a US made set i photographed a while ago in a US Advisor reconstruction. For ease of reference this pattern and cut is normally referred to as RN 25334.
This particular set was produced by the "Camouflage manufacturing Co" of Jacksonville, Florida.
This can be deduced by the tag on the matching trousers (shown later).
During August 1960, the above company applied for a Registered Identification Number (RN) to the Federal Trade Commission of the United States, and was issued RN 25334. Garments made by the company in this pattern and cut from 1960 through to 1964 will all possess this RN number and it will be found on the tag sewn to the garment.
These garments are of the 2nd type produced by the company, i have a set of the 1st variant also.
The maker code from where the name originates.
The hat is quite interesting.
Although a close match in both tones and colour it isn't actually the same pattern...but is is very very close.
Here is a patrol cap in the matching RN 25334 pattern.
These are actually rather hard to find, much more so than the jackets and trousers which are fairly common.
This example is a US made commercial item.
just a addon to this great collection...
this is a indochina cap utilised by 6 BPC in late war... this is a original from a great grouping...
the cut comes from the Japanese tropical hairstyle... as what the style lasts after 30 years of conflicts!
