    Found this A2 on a militaria auction site recently. As you can see it has no maker label.
    Can one of you guys ID this thing based on the pics? Thanks in advance. 33558_1-1.jpg 33558_7.jpg 33558_6-1.jpg

    It does have 3-piece sleeves which means not an offical issue contract.
    Maybe a private purchase Dubow.

    out of curiosity what purpose did the addition of the three piece sleeve serve? why would a contractor alter the cut of an A-2 in such a way? was it easier to produce in this fashion since it didn't require military contract approval?

    Makes for more economical cutting, there aren't enough small panels in an Issue A-2 and Horse FQs are fairly small
     
    Roughwear and Edward like this.
