"Shining Brass"/MACVSOG gear


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have photos or info on the gear carried/worn by the first Recon Teams (RTs) that went into Laos 1965?

 

I have the good fortune to own a grouping from one of the first RT team leaders, MSG Richard Warren (2nd mission into Laos RT Alaska). I have a number of his uniforms and couple pieces of gear.

 

What type of gear did they carry? There is the picture of him returning from Laos in Plaster's book. All you can see is CISO rucksack, H-1 radio and Swedish-K. I have his original CISO 1st pattern rucksack.

 

I would like to build a mannequin for his stuff

 

BTW anyone have pics of Richard Warren?

 

Thanks in advance
