Item Description

Original Item: Only One Set Available. This United Marine Corps World War Two USMC HBT Herringbone Twill P41 Utility Jacket in size 42 is featured on pages 195-196 in the book Sailors in Forest Green; USN Personnel Attached to the USMC, Volume 1 by Jeff Warner. In fact this piece was purchased by IMA from the estate of Mr. Warner along with much of his personal collection.

The USMC HBT utility uniform worn during World War II was used extensively from Guadalcanal in 1942 to Okinawa in 1945. The utility coat (pictured here) is a simple design featuring three patch pockets, button sleeve cuffs and a four button front closure. This uniform and the accompanying trousers were worn on all Marine battlefields by Navy personnel as well. As on other U.S. Navy and Marine Corps garments, the manufacturer's information was printed on white tags or ink stamped directly onto the item, as seen here. (J. Warner)
