    Greatcoat wanted

    Post by Michiel on Sun Jul 14, 2013 6:40 am

    Does anyone know a Canadian Great Coat WWII large size for sale? With a price I can handle :-).
    I am 6 ft 2 tall. It's for my re-enacting collection.
    Thanks,
    Michiel

    I know someone who has one for sale. Unsure of size, but it is dated 1943. I am visiting him tomorrow morning so I will check for you.

    Canadian Greatcoats

    Did you try checking some of the surplus outlets in western Belgium? I was there in April and there were a number of Canadian WWII Greatcoats for sale - apparently no-one is really interested in them.

    The search didn't work out. I am on a new mission, found and Dutch Great Coat wich fits me. Only have to change the buttons into GS Canadian ones. So, who has them for sale or knows someone? Allready searched Ebay.

    From memory, I believe the back three are 25mm and the shoulder straps at 12.5mm.
