That was a real good day , I remember the wosh of thae water and laughing!!!!

great decials though ,not to mention a wee bit of cammo thrown in for luck.

A

I just spoke to Andy and he has to look for the page #

He thinks he is in the faces of the regiment , he is sitting on the ground leaning on a lightweight ruck.

He has a big mustache and is holding a 60 .

The book is the 69-70

Andy was in 3rd -22nd charlie company 25id.

He told me the picture was taken just after he returned from Cambodia and was in a very bad mood!!!

Its sad to me because he never carried a camera during his tour only 1000 rounds for his 60 .

This dude is 6'5 and a big guy.

His thing was less gear ,more ammo!!

He also NEVER wore a helmet and laughed at me when I asked him about that .

I got some bits and pieces from him but nothing out of the ballpark.

You would enjoy his stories , that man loves to gab.

All the best

There is a debate about these hats ,some poeple call them gold pattern but the material is different ,more lightweight but this hat is in a class all by itself , simply stunning .

This is what collecting tiger is all about.

Here we have a in old school talk is a silver tiger.

Or Tadpole pattern .

I consider these really hard to find in this pattern.

The norm is the John W pattern.

Cut is the same as the last gold hat .

In 25 years I have only seen 3 of these .

VNMC pattern beach ball hat .

I have a set in this pattern dated 09 66 .

I think there was 4 patterns in use for VNMC and this was the 3rd.

This hat is made up using scraps of cutoffs and otherwise scrap material.

I have seen all patterns made into this type of hat .

Nothing was wasted which I think is rather cool.
