#SN7 USMC P42 Camouflage Utility Uniform Set
USMC P1942 "frog camouflage" utility jacket and trousers. This is the earliest style frogskin uniform that saw widespread use by Marines during WWII in the Pacific and one of the most iconic Marine uniforms. This is a great matching set with strong colours in a perfect mannequin size. The condition of the set is excellent and barely used without any damage or repairs. This is an iconic WWII uniform would go well in any WWII or USMC collection. It is really tough to find good matching USMC P42 camouflage utility uniforms, this is the set any USMC collector would be proud to own. Scarce. $2800

#SN6 USMC P41 Patch Pocket Trousers
Original WWII United States Marine Corps patch pocket trousers. This is the earliest type of USMC P41 utility trousers, with distinctive "patch pockets" sewn to the exterior. This style of USMC trousers appear in period photos from the earliest battles the Marines fought in during WWII. Not many of these early pairs still exist in collections today. The trousers are in worn and issued condition, there is a bit of soiling and small stains but nothing serious. The bottom of one leg has frayed, probably from rubbing against the ground or a boot in rough terrain. This pair of trousers at one point belonged to the Western Costume Company for Hollywood film use, and they have applied their studio stamp inside the waste. A very rare pair of USMC trousers ready to complete an early WWII Marine impression. $550

#EC43 35th Infantry Division Shirt
Original WW2 US Army 35th Infantry Division Technician 4th Grade ‘Shirt, Flannel, OD, Coat Style, Special’ (Known by collectors as a gas trap shirt). Size 17-33. Shirt features original period applied US Army 35th Infantry Division shoulder sleeve insignia on the left shoulder, a US Army Technician 4th Grade sleeve rank chevron on each upper arm, and two 6-month Overseas Service Bars on the lower left arm.

Unfortunately, the shirt was field-modified as the buttoned gas-proof flap inside the front opening was cut out at some point, probably by the shirt’s original owner who found it uncomfortable, otherwise it's a great shirt. $50

#SB14 7th Infantry Division Combat Rucksack Group from the Aleutian Islands 
Interesting combat rucksack grouping to a soldier named 'Steele' of the 7th Infantry Division who took part in the amphibious assault on Attu Island, the western-most Japanese entrenchment.  While the initial landings were unopposed, the 7th Infantry Division fought the Japanese in an intense battle over the frozen tundra after pushing inland the day following the invasion. The group consists of the named rucksack to 'Steele' and markings 'HQ-53' over 'S' which is yet to be researched, as well his parka, balaclava, 7th Infantry Division patch, Kiska patch, two pairs of sun googles, and a captured Imperial Japanese Navy Petty Officer's cap badge. $450

#SB8 Alaskan Defence Command Grouping to A.M. Machowicz Jr.
Alaskan Defence Command Grouping to T/4 A.M. Machowicz Jr. of the US Army Medical Corps. The lot consists of his Ike Jacket with 2nd Pattern Alaskan Defense Command Patch (1942 and later) positioned at the top of his left sleeve and the Aleutian Island patch on top of his right sleeve. On both sleeves is the rank badge of Technician Fourth Class. On his right lapel is the US collar disc and on the left lapel the stamped collar disc of the US Army Medical Corps. Over his left breast pocket are the medal ribbons of the (top left) Victory Medal, Veterans of Foreign Wars Ribbon, (bottom left) Asiatic Pacific Medal, Good Conduct Medal and American Campaign Medal. The Ike jacket also includes a pair of trousers with the last four digits in Machowicz’s serial number inked in. There is also a shirt with the 2nd Pattern ADC patch. To top off the group there is a complete WWII Liner, Helmet, Steel M-1 with MACHOWICZ stenciled in white across the front. There is no steel shell but it would be easy to locate one. Finally a complete set of T45 dog tags to Machowicz. Since he wears the Asiatic Pacific Campaign medal ribbon and the Aleutian Islands patch, this indicates that he served as a follow up to the invasion forces that landed on Attu or Kiska between May and August 1943 in the Aleutian Island Campaign. $400

Frank.  The jacket features and embossed leather name tag above the left chest pocket, with gold infill.  Inside the jacket the Colonel has hand sewn his silk China-Burma-India (CBI) blood chits numbered 22692 and 70074.  This is an all original untouched example, the blood chits show genuine wear that sinks right into the jacket exactly how they should be and there is no doubt the Colonel wore this jacket on operations.  A really impressive M43 jacket.  This is a very cool jacket that could be displayed nicely inside out! *Sold*

Original WWII USMC 1st Marine Division Sgt Maj Alpha tunic and trousers.  The tunic is originally period badged for the rank, shoulder sleeve insignia, ordnance trade badge and hashmark.  The metal insignia was at some point stripped, and the collector consigning this tunic has re-badged the tunic with appropriate EGA's, ribbon bar, shooting badge and fourragere for the 5th Marines.  This is a great looking set for a high ranking Senior NCO.  The items that were re-added are well done, honestly disclosed, and priced accordingly.  A really sharp looking uniform for your USMC collection! *Sold*

#SN2 USMC P1944 Reversible Camouflage Trousers
Original WWII United States Marine Corps (USMC) 2nd pattern reversible camouflage trousers. The trousers can be flipped inside out exposing either a jungle or beach camouflage pattern.

There is also a “21” stencilled on the beach side near the waste, possibly an unknown UNIS (Unit Numerical Identification System) marking. Top condition pair of trousers. *Sold*
