Original U.S. WWII USMC P44 Frogskin Reversible Camouflage HBT Shirt

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Learning from experience at Tarawa, the United States Marine Corps redesigned its combat uniforms to allow Marines in amphibious assaults to "fight out of their pockets" if web gear and packs needed to be discarded.

The P-44 "frogskin" camo combat shirt incorporated large, snap entry chest pockets for flotation devices, grenades, rations, or extra ammunition. Fully reversible from a green "jungle" side to a brown "beach" side, the shirt quickly became symbolic of the hard fighting Leatherneck of the Pacific War.

This USMC Marine US WW2 P-44 FROGSKIN CAMO HBT FIELD COMBAT SHIRT is in very condition, with some minor repairs and some scattered spots of surface nicking around the back, and with some light scattered wrinkling evident. Otherwise, the shirt is in great shape. Herring Bone Twill HBT cotton construction. Most interestingly, it's fully reversible, and retains the original bright, vibrant, and distinct frogskin camouflage colors at both the green "jungle" side and the brown "beach" side. It boasts all of the original "U.S. MARINE CORPS" embossed darkened brass "donut" buttons down the front and all snaps which function perfectly.
