M-1926 enlisted summer service coat


Recommended Posts

Another fine example of the Khaki coat.

 

One James Valk Hawaiian Department 1930s actual date unknown. Unfortunetely we can't make out the DIs on the lower lapels, wouldn't be for any of the Infantry Regiments as they as we know were over in the Hawaiian Division.

Here's a question, was the Service Cap the only form of Headgear permitted to be worn with the Khakis, or could the Campaign Hat be worn too on occasion on duty or off, or as per Uniform of the Day dictates?

So far as I know, only the wool visor and campaign hats were authorized for wear with this coat, however I did purchase a khaki visor with QM stamps a few years back. I was surprised that it existed. I suspect these were not issued to every soldier who was issued the khaki coat, but I don't know. Certainly mine is the only one I ever saw. I suspect that this was because the government cut spending during the depression.

Then out spake brave Horatius, the Captain of the Gate:


"To every man upon this earth death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better than facing fearful odds,


For the ashes of his fathers, and the temples of his gods."

Thanks for the pics, nice, not certain, but since they are reinforced they might be Cavalry breeches for that same period, will see what other think. What do you think the HQ stamp says? can't make out much after HQ.
