US Marine Corp service dress jacket

Recommended Posts

Had to add these to my collection. 1933-34 dated USMC Blues dress jacket ( I also got the blue trousers) and a USMC Blue dress hat (1922 type). These were the dress uniform as worn by the "China" marines i.e. those that served in China with the 4th Marine Regiment stationed in Shanghai from 1927 to 1941 . Belt is a repro but buckle is an original but unsure of date on this and the service hat. The tunic is named to a C A Recio who was I believe stationed at a US Navy Station. Rank Badge is for 6th Grade. As I said I had to have these and when you see it buy it! I do however need to find a mannequin for display with the trousers. :thumbsup: **==

Finally acquired a small enough mannequin to fit. (Shoes are modern but look the part). Also added a USMC Sharpshooter badge.

You can contact Geoff at Golden Arrow Research and he can pull the Marines service record for you for a fee. There may even be a photograph of him in the record.
