ARVN Last Issue Uniform

Dated: 1975

Description: OD Green, 4-Pocket. Bearing a March 1975 manufacture date this tunic was one of the last ARVN uniforms to be produced. Evidence of insignia once placed above the pockets further indicates this uniform saw use in the ARVN, further making it one of the last ARVN uniforms to be issued in the final weeks of the republic. It is likely to assume this would have been issued to a soldier in the Saigon area, possibly even on his way into Xuan Loc, since government issue uniforms were produced in the Saigon area, and by March new uniforms would not have been able to be shipped to the northern provinces.

Soldiers of the 18th Division in 4-pocket uniforms, outside Xuan Loc, March, 1975.
