A beautiful example of a 2nd pattern Tropical Combat Coat with wartime insignia. A 2nd pattern jacket can be identified by its epaulettes, waist adjustment tabs on the rear, and gas flap under the main closure, all of which were omitted with the introduction of the 3rd pattern. The example includes originally applied wartime insignia and is attributed to a Corporal of the 1st Aviation Brigade. The 1st Avi. Bde. SSI is a fantastic subdued Vietnamese-made, hand-embroidered example.
Excellent condition with minor wear - All buttons, fittings and fixtures are present. The contract label is present and legible. The number '4' has been written in marker pent under the collar. There is very light shadowing from removed tapes above either breast pockets.
