Tiger Stripes

That is a great childhood story .

 

War stuff was meant to be played with .

Who cares if it got abused .

 

The important thing is the shirt did its job and brought your friends daddy home .

Camouflage was meant to save lives .

 

I lost a 1st pattern Farborne Sikes commando knife in the woods when I was a kid .

It was given to me by a locial X paratrooper who jumped into Arnhem in 1944 .

When I told him I lost it he didnt care and gave me a Dennison smock and a water bottle cover and told me to run along and have fun with the items !!

 

I wore that thing ragged , and it was down to my knees .

Guilt ....... None

I looked cool and had a water bottle cover to carry my sweets and sandwitch around all summer long .

...and i remember back in 1970 , running around in a Waffen-SS double decal M-35 helmet, playing WW-2 , older people were giving me the weird look, but hey, that was Carl Schultz park in east Manhattan , those were the days :lol:

I scraped all the zimmert of a fantastic luft cammo helmet Red cross helmet just to see if it had any decals .

And it did .

It was then painted gloss black and ss ed up .

I was 10 ish and it seemed the right thing to do at the time !!!!

Sasha .

You are wearing green flip flops today !!

I am wearing red ones .

Flip flops look just right with a tiger suit .

Trey made the shirt high in the arm pits just like the original ones but made the body length longer , this was so the customer could do as pleased for a custom fit .

You did a great job on this .

Now where is the double decal helmet ???

Wear them both and you will look like a 1960s Laguna Beach surf Nazi !!!
