US Paratrooper M1942 Jumpsuit – 101st Airborne Division
Original 101st Airborne Division paratrooper M1942 jumpsuit. The jump suit is in worn condition, has seen action and shows traces of wear. Original Major rank insignia to the shoulder boards and orignal applied 101st Airborne Division ‘screaming eagle’ patch on the left upper arm. Good mannequin size. The jacket retains all funtional zippers and press studs and its waist belt. There is a label inside one of the larger pockets, most of the text is unreadable. Very nice original 101st Airborne Division Jump Suit!
