Walking out and off duty uniforms by Mike "Special K" Kaczorowski

 

During official ceremonies, clerk duties as well off duty walking out the 60th Infantry Regiment GI often wore the following.  

Class A's post August 1942

 

Uniform

 

1. Garrison Cap (pictured). Piping on the cap represents the arm of service. Pictured  is a medic of the company, therefore piping is maroon/white. Infantry piping should be light blue. Often garrison caps had no piping or no Distinctive Unit Insignia, or DUI, or DI.  

 

2. M37 wool shirt and trousers with OD3 web belt. 

3. Khaki tie. 

4. Wool enlisted man's four pocket service coat with collar discs.  US on the right and arm of service on the left. 

 

5. Type II service shoes. 


NOTE:

During the war it was difficult to acquire unit DI. However prior to it and during occupational duty, these were readily available and also worn below the collar discs.
