WW2 issue USMC Poncho

Postby Tailgunnerdownunder » Mon Mar 11, 2019 5:08 am

Always wanted one of these. Not a rare item by any measure but still wanted to get a good example so I took my time then 'jumped' on this one a few years back. Everything is there and works fine. Nicely dated by the manufacturer June 13 1944. It has some age to it and may have seen some use as the stamp is somewhat faded but if so not much. Waterproof cloth and with reversible sides of coral beach to jungle green same as the camo helmet covers except they weren't waterproof.

Hope you like it :thumbsup:

I thought while I had the 'toys' out I would add a couple of items and tell a bit of a story :smile:
