USMC airborne


Recommended Posts

Here is a second pattern smock that I saw at a militaria show in Franklin, TN last November. I took a couple of pictures with my cell phone but one is a little blurry. I think the price was $3000.

I didn't know Bruce Canfield had a reference out on the Johnson- sounds like a must-have.

Support our troops...abandoning the War on Terror is not an affordable luxury.

I'm so old, I still call W.W.II U.S. militaria "war surplus".

NO EXPERT . Don't know if this is the correct forum..please move it if necessary . This months American Rifleman . has a fine article about the Model 1941 Johnson and it's use by Para Marines .

 

Well, if the Johnson isn't "USMC Airborne", I don't know what is B)

Thanks for the heads-up!
