Post WWII P41 HBT Coat Modified 1st Armored Amphibious Battalion FMF
This is a modified P-41 as used by a Marine in the late 40's early 50's. As you can see the bottom pockets removed usually for the purpose of tucking the jacket into the trousers. Also name tags over the pockets are a post WWII trait. I especially like this tag as its made of HBT material rather than the usual white tape or written in with a marker. While these coats were originally made in WWII their usage lasted through the late 50's and details such as name tags and removed pockets can specifically change the continued usage dates of these to Post WWII. An incredible coat none the less with a unique name tag.
