Vintage WWII US Army Enlisted Wool Field Shirt w/Gas Flap
LIMITED ITEM. SURPLUS - PREVIOUSLY OWNED, Small amount of moth hole Damage. Once they are gone we may not get any more. Sold As Is - NON-REFUNDABLE.
This is a used 3rd Pattern Field Shirt with the Internal Gas Flap. This shirt has all of the brown buttons, including the two on the back of the collar. It is made of a light weight wool material. There are no rips or tears but there are 3 moth holes on or near right shoulder, one small one in the middle of back and another small one under the left pocket (see photos). The shirt is a size 14 1/2 x 33.
The 3rd pattern eliminated the elbow reinforcements and introduced the internal gas flap. This was a flap of material that is buttoned across inside the front opening to prevent gas or chemicals coming into contact with the skin. These flaps would often be removed by soldiers in the field.
Excellent choice for any collector, person searching for Halloween attire, or simply a fantastic jacket for regular use.

NOTE: Over the years we have collected items with historical interest. The majority of our memorabilia is war related and we do not wish to offend anyone. We do not support or condone war but believe that historical items can remind us of our history, teach us about specific moments in time and hopefully prevent us from reliving any manmade horrific times in history. Any items we offer are intended for collectors of memorabilia and hopefully will be used for educational purposes. All of our collectables come from our own private collection via many X-service personnel and government auctions and have included Nazi party, Holocaust, Allgemeine and Waffen SS, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine, Kamikaze, Japanese, Australian, U.S., British items, etc. We should not forget our past but should endeavor to learn from its mistakes. It is our hope we never forget those that have died as a result of war. May god protect them!
