Show your Rarest or Favorite Uniforms!


Recommended Posts

I have a few uniforms which I consider to be "RARE".

 

1- Service Pilot Uniform bought straight from the veteran's son, that came with some extras. Combine the service pilot aspect with the fact that he was also a flight instructor!

This uniform is to a fella that served in the OSS in Greese, I was hoping that someone might be able to ID the patch on the right breast pocket. I believe it might be Greek of some sort. The picture in the lower right corner is of the man in this uniform. This is my first attempt at posting with a picture, I hope it comes out OK. Jon post-179-1167596518.jpg

Here is one to a X Corps, FEC Colonel. The ribbon bar is sewn on, and the US and ordnance insignia is direct bullion. Not shown, but the overseas bars are direct bullioned on as well on the right sleeve. I also didn't show either shoulder patch or he Col rank on top.

Nice uniforms everyone!

 

Here is a treasured FSSF uniform that is part of a grouping I have. The guy was a local, and his widow lives less than a mile from my house! I've had the pleasure of meeting with her several times to discuss her late husband's involvement in WWII.

 

He was in the Force since it's inception in 1942 at Helena, MT. He went to the Aleutians and was later wounded in Italy.

Thats a real nice uniform youve got there! I like those uniforms that go with a picture to prove the uniform is not messed with! Also nice to see is that mini jump wing on this garrison!

Thanks! I added a period pic to verify how the vet elected to wear his FSSF braid. It's rather unorthodox but 100% legit.

His O/S cap is nice quality elastic wool, itentical to the material used on WWII officer blouses.
