WWI US Model 1916 Wool Pullover Shirt
Item #: WR291
This is a US Army Model 1916 wool pullover shirt used during the Mexican Expedition, World War I and into the 1930's. These are the standard shirts worn by all Army personnel during the war. It is made of 8 1/2 ounce olive drab colored shirting flannel that is 80% wool and 20% cotton. It is a pullover style shirt with a three button placket front. It has a rolling collar. Six of the seven brown plastic buttons are still present. The one missing is the middle one on the front of the shirt. There are two pockets on the front of the shirt, each straight pocket flap secured by a single button. On each pocket is a sewn pencil pocket, located on the button side of the pocket. Each sleeve has been reinforced with an oval shaped elbow patch. The sleeve openings have been reinforced with white cotton bating. The quartermaster tag is barely hanging on, and is not legible. The shirt is in very good condition, having no rips, tears or stains. It does have two small moth holes, one on the placket between the middle and bottom button, and the other on the back of the collar. It is a medium size shirt, but does not have any size stamped on it. This shirt would look great on a mannequin and compliment any WWI Doughboy collection.
