Description

OVERCOAT – EM M1918 (NO TABS ON CUFF), SMALL SIZE, OCTOBER 1917 TAG (VERY EARLY CONTRACT FOR THIS MODEL – PROBABLY JUST A REVISION SENT IN ON AN OLD CONTRACT), NAME “F.B.EFRID” INSIDE. VG-EXC. WEARABLE. THIS IS THE SHORTENED VARIATION (DID NOT CATCH IN THE WIRE SO EASILY) WITH SHORTER INNER LINING (SAVING MATERIAL). VG-EXC I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO TALK TO SOME WWI VETS BEFORE THEY WERE ALL GONE. ONE OF THEM TOLD ME THAT HE HAD TO TURN IN HIS OVERCOAT WHEN MUSTERING OUT. THEN AFTER THE WAR THE GOVERNMENT SENT HIM A LETTER OFFERING HIM AN OVERCOAT FOR FREE, SO HE GOT ONE BACK. I GUESS THEY HAD SO MANY THAT THEY WANTED TO GET RID OF THEM.
