    The Wool Flannel shirts were issue in WWII for Field and Service dress use. During the Korean War were also used that first winter as supplemental field CW issue. Your shirt could be from either WWII or Korea.

    No LD, it is definitely not korean era manufacture, the uniform had been replaced by then. Surplus stock was issued until exhausted but it had not been manufactured for some years.

    LD didn't say is was produced during the Korea time frame, only that it was used, especially during the first winter. The wool shirt was further used with some changes in cut and color as part of the winter field uniforms up until the synthetic craze began. Same as the brown wool, button neck sweater.

    No, "could be from ww2 or korea" could mean anything.

    The wool shirt was not changed until the 1951 pattern came out, which was OG107 wool/nylon blend. This remained the same until the late '80s.
    The 5-button high-neck sweater changed in the late 50's from 100% wool in brownish green to part wool, part nylon in olive green with different buttons.

    I think you are reading into it too much in regards to LD's reply. And thanks for the history lesson, although not sure where you got all the info as there was nothing green about the updated "brown" sweaters as they were called, because they were, uhhh,"brown" in color, not olive green. At least none of the many I had issued and worn over the years

    I can see what you mean, the newer sweaters were a lot darker and indeed more brown than green. There's a clear difference when you compare them..

    Default ID patch help

    I purchased a big lot of Marine Corps gear recently and this patch was in an envelope with many Marine and foreign patches. I cant ID the unit and thought I would ask the experts. The patch is stiff and velcro backed

    Default 29th Squadron Patch, more info?

    Swapped a patch this weekend, it only said US on the bag I found it in, tried to locate some info on the squadron, but couldn't find the patch anywhere else.



    It looks old and worn, rockets on it, I am guessing 60-70s? Anyone got more info on this?

    Default Identification of the nation and title of these shoulder patches

    I need help with the identification of the nation and title of these shoulder patches.
    I saw something russian who looked like these, but only found it on one spot in the internet, and it looked fake.

    I searched for a long period, but i just cant find it.

    I got it in Bosnia (Mostar).

    Default Anyone ID this Patch?

    My friend has just come back from Leapfest and he got me a load of stuff.

    But i have no idea what this is? I thought it was something to do with the 19th SFG but i can't find anything anywhere online

    I don't no if the Mountain tab is part of it. It was stuck to the back but he did get me about 20+ patches etc.
