This famous open-collared field blouse was developed in 1940 in anticipation of deployment of German forces to North Africa under Rommel. This jacket has four pleated patch pockets with scalloped flaps. It also has a five-button front and no provision whatsoever for closing the collar. All the buttons were the standard 19mm pebbled type and have the removeable "S" toggles found on all German "cotton" uniform jackets of the period. Inside, the jacket has a partial lining and a field dressing pocket located in the lower right front of the jacket skirt. The back of the jacket has the usual center vent and central seam. Belt hook hangers are on each side under the arm and the jacket has three eyelets on each side to accomodate belt hooks.
The Lost Battalions tropical jacket is a completely faithful reproduction of the original right down to the removeable buttons and lives up to our reputation for making the very best reproduction German uniforms.
