This is an original WWII Airborne Troop Carrier Ike jacket. All components are authentic and untouched. This size 36L jacket was manufactured by the Philadelphia Quartermaster Depot in early 1944, prior to the mass issue of contracts to commercial clothing companies. The jacket showcases a somewhat illegible laundry number, however it can be discerned that the three-year-veteran served in an Airborne Troop Carrier outfit with one and a half years overseas service, and rose to the rank of corporal before being honorably discharged. The camouflage parachute scarf is not included in this listing.
