Country of Origin: France

The heavyweight complement to the French M1947 uniform, was this outstanding four pocket bush jacket, a design light years ahead of similar hard use uniforms that were contemporary to other militaries in the later 1940s. Adopted shortly after the Second World War in 1947, these bush jackets saw extensive use throughout various French colonial conflicts, particularly in Algeria and Indochina. If only these jackets could tell their stories, because they seem to have been all over the world. 

They're constructed out of the unique light brown of the M1947 French uniforms, and made from a heavyweight old school cotton twill design. They feature four large buttoned pockets, and adjustable buttoned cuffs. No zippers, no velcro, just the classic bush warrior look with this jacket, making it ideal for re-enactors (both for French, and mercenary forces), anti-Communist LARPers, collectors, and those simply looking for a vintage bush jacket!

Given the relative rarity of these jackets, and their age, it is rather unlikely we'll ever see many of these again. Once they're gone (especially some of the better sizes), they're REALLY gone!

Splendid Buy!
This was a splendid buy! Unlike many in the States, I've always admired the fighting qualities of & been fascinated by the French Army in the Indochina & Algerian wars. Read everything I could get my hands on (at least whats available in English) on both wars. Collected any available militaria from both. I've always wanted to own a set of M47 Fatigues (at least the jacket). For some reason when I bought this jacket (Sz Large X long) I was thinking in American size. Much to my surprise & glee not only did I get an authentic French M47 Jacket, I also got one that is a PERFECT FIT! Guess the French sizing is pretty close to American.(I'm 6"3, 255 lbs.). The inside of the jacket is marked 49. My "normal "jacket size is 48/50. The inside markings are cool too; ARMEE, LILLE (city where it was made) .The jacket is a perfect companion to my original M49 khaki French Army bush hat. Great purchase!May have to buy another! Just a great, great piece of military history!Thanks Fire Force!
