This is a US Model 1918 style winter uniform worn by the US Army during World War I. This 1918 tunic and pants were made in New York, as shown by the clothing label of C-G DeLuxe NEW YORK sewn on the left side of the partial lining. It features the four pocket design with epaulets. The five button coat has the subdued US eagle buttons, with six smaller buttons of the same type for the pockets and epaulets. The coat size buttons are back marked "D. EVANS & CO ATLEBORO MASS". The smaller buttons are all back marked "D. EVANS & CO ATT". The coat is partially lined and has no inner pocket. There are no stamped or hand written names anywhere inside the tunic. The left sleeve has a Tank Corps patch sewn on. A red discharge stripe is sewn on below the triangular yellow, red and blue Tank Corps patch. Above the left sleeve cuff are two gold chevrons of bullion, indicating one year of overseas service. The chevrons of a Battalion Sergeant Major are sewn onto the right sleeve. The left side of the collar has the 2nd Pattern Tank Corps collar brass, depicting a Mark VIII tanks sitting on two fire breathing dragons over a laurel wreath. The right collar has the US collar disc with the block NA in a rectangle, representing the National Army. A World War I Victory ribbon is displayed above the left pocket flap, showing two campaign stars. There is no insect damage showing anywhere on the tunic, there are no rips, tears or stains found on the tunic either. The trousers are not identified by a makers label, but I believe they are from the same manufacturer as the tunic. They are in very good condition as well, with no insect damage and no staining or other problems. Instead of using laces at the bottom of the pants legs, this set of trousers uses buttons. The initials of AJG have been inked into the waistband of the trousers. The pants still have the US QMD belt with them. This is a fantastic example of a US Model 1918 uniform worn by a Battalion level Sergeant major of the new formed Tank Corps. It displays well on a mannequin and will look great in any war room!
