This are the WWII U.S. M43 field combat jackets.
These were introduced in 1944 and the 101st airborne division was the first one who used them during operation Market Garden.
Jackets are made from a green coloured cotton sateen.
They replaced all the previous combat jackets and were used long after WW2.
The versions displayed here are all guaranteed WW2.
