For you to wear at some point ?
Or do you mean when that baby boy grows up to be a man ?
if that C2 ever needs a new home ??
So does anyone have a C-2 vest that’s actually marked with a AAF label? I think most like mine are Korean War USMC vests. Some call them paramarine vests but I have seen them in a lot of KW pics.
Dave , are you now talking about the alpaca lined vests ? .
Yes. They were long thought of as AAF issue but wondering if any are found actually marked as such. I have yet to look them up in the AAF catalogue but...
Nothing in the Class 13 catalog Dave , even in Sweetings book they are only briefly mentioned . I have found so far ,only one contract that describes an " Alpaca Vest" and that is not a AAF contract , its a QM contract
The only contract i can find so far for the sleeveless Alpaca lined vest is this one .
It is an OLDIN DENIS contract ,and of note is the contract is not AC but a QM also the award date 4/45 , so i would think they wouldnt be getting to unit level for a while after that date ?
The contract details
The item in question !
You always have the coolest stuff!!
Yep. Good stuff and verifies my suspicion. Looks identical to mine which appears to never have been worn.
Thanks for the research!
Also , i have just noticed it was actually a contract for the US Navy ! . The letter "N" in the first column
