Fantastic. I haven't seen many of those pictures.

Anyone know what that bush hat in a few of those photos is? Local fabrication? Looks British to me.

British P44 hats have large ventilation holes though?

The Commandos de Marine also used the G/K-43 in Indochina, until that was replaced by the MAS Mle. 44, which was then superseded by the Mle. 49. Mle. 44s could be seen in use in Algeria , though.

This thread is incredibly cool! I never knew of this jacket pattern before and I have a large interest in French operations in Indochina! Thank you!

Its really to me more of a smock than a jacket although it looks like some were converted to full zip or was there another pattern? I know that French troops did a lot of customizing of their kit in Indo.

BTW, I am assuming there was no corresponding trousers in this pattern? Wonder why?

Best regards,
Bill K.

It's an almost straight copy of the Denison Smock. There is one slant pocket on the rear. Some were modified with a full zip, but most were pullovers. There were no corresponding trousers.

Thanks for the great pics! I will never be able to afford the smock, but at least I have the same kind of sneakers worn on the right!
