What is This Liner??


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

Does anyone know when this liner would have been painted like this? The decals are to the 102nd Division and 6th Infantry Regiment. I've never seen a paint scheme like this though, any ideas? The Lt. bar is silver and is a screw back. The liner itself is a WWII CAPAC, the sweatband is dated 1953, and the nape strap is dated 1955.

 

The impression I got was that this is from post-WWII occupation duty.

 

 

Thanks for your thoughts,

 

Kyle

Looking for anything relating to the 78th US Naval Construction Battalion during WWII and the 26th Inf. Regt. 1st Inf. Div. during WWII

6th Infantry Regiment didnt serve as part of the 102nd in WWII, IIRC. On 1 May, 1946 it was redesignated the 12th Constabulary Squadron

 

You have your unit designations out of order.

 

The 6th AIB, an element of the 1st AD, was redesignated 12th Constab Sq 1 May 46 and assigned to 1st Constab Regt. The 12th Constab Sq was inactivated 20 Sept 47. The 6th AIB was converted and redesignated 6th IR (less 2nd and 3rd Bns) 10 Oct 50 and relieved of assignment to the 1st Constab Regt. 6th IR assigned to USAREUR. It never was an element of the 102nd ID at any point in its hx.

It could have been from a movie................we have had many discussions on the Forum re: "authenticity" of uniforms, insignia, etc. in the movie industry.
