Yeah, been reading up and looking into 23rd FG for ages. I have a lot of pics. Period pics are almost all b/w, with a few colour. Also pics of original 23rd FG and CBI jackets.
My Art of the flight jacket is stored away, so I no longer have that reference, but clearly both seal and russet were worn. I would hazard to say that more were russet than were seal.
Really, both would be authentic.

I dare you to put that on! Its melting out there lol
You must be insane...

Tried it on without a T shirt in 34* and felt like a monk with a horsehair undershirt. They really put a lot of thought into the available materials of 1942 to make something really practical, durable and warm with the minimum of fuss. Bronson in my opinion have nailed it as far as quality and detail go. However I have never had a Tanker Type 2 jacket to compare against, just my opinion of the overall construction...

Brilliant Thankyou, for the link too...
strange coincidence, rainy morn here in London UK, so grabbed a cap to wear on walk to shops, of course rain stopped almost immediately, just got in and thought I'd look up this site as I hadn't for the many days of heatwave here and saw the posts on the M1943 cap..... type I'd just been wearing.... picked up about 50 years ago, used to wear it on the jeep and digging in the garden etc etc, a great all round casual cap now, just taken a couple of pics
