    My friend and I are having trouble identifying this shirt's era, and country, due to then lack of tags. I have a suspicion that it's American due to the patch. There are what look to be the remnants of ink markings as well.

    google EUSA. Sorry...just noticed you are asking for uniform ID

    Appears to be US...but not sure....

    M1937 US Army wool shirt, worn with the M1937 wool trousers as part of the class A and class B uniforms in ww2. Worn with either a service coat or a field jacket on top. Standard issue field and dress shirt in ww2. It's an original as well.

    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    No LD, it is definitely not korean era manufacture, the uniform had been replaced by then.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?
