Just having a move around/sort out and come accross a jacket that Ive had for many years but failed back then(and now) to find any info regarding them or pics of them in use.

From the limited pics Ive seen online it seems to be a Pattern 1938 Bourgeron Jacket.

Camera is playing up at the moment but is made of denim type green material with 2 lower pockets and a waist belt.

Anybody please have any pics or info regarding this type of jacket?

Many Thanks.

From what I know and can figure out, its basically a fatigue jacket - like British denims or German HBT work uniforms.

Just like those two things, you do see them crop up in photos because during a war people sometimes wear whatever they can find or are comfortable.

If so, then you are right, it is basically a fatigue dress sometimes used as combat dress.
