    Hello everyone,

    I use a translator. Sorry if the words are not properly used.

    I am part of a club to commemorate American soldiers near Bastogne in Belgium. I am new in ww2

    I just find out if you could help me in identifying an outfit.

    I am fortunate to have a jacket but I wonder it (it has no label on the inside). US Release jackets usually have straight pockets. One can place the decorations received in parallel at the seams. My jacket is not straight pockets. Yet it seems to have been carried in 40-45. (See photos, the serial number, ..).

    Could you help me and tell me if you think this jacket be true? And if it is true, how is putting decorations? Parallel to the seams? (Even if all the decorations will be wrong).
    In short, if you could help me by providing me with much information on this jacket.

    Thank you very much
