Just dug out my uniform (winter greens) from 42 years ago. NO. IT DON'T FIT ! Noticed that the belt buckle for my blouse is missing, driving me up the wall.
Asking if any you old JarHeads still have your greens (circa 1966-69) with the brass buckle ? Does your buckle have any marks on it. I ask because I have found a person selling Viet Nam era buckles, one is marked "LAKA TOOL", the other is marked "V.3." and the 3rd is unmarked.
I have the trousers, long sleeve shirt and the blouse, just missing the buckle. I have my father-n-law's blouse from WW11, my Viet Nam era uniform and someday my son will add his Navy uniform. I want mine to be right...
Suggestions on where I might find the right buckle........

Thanks for your help.

iamcloudlander,

Exactly what I am looking for. Fill me in on the particulars. Again it's for the Green Blouse, see pic.

Have rode my old Panhead throught Bakersfield many times (Kern River). Damn near bought the farm in Delano (1989) when a field worker pulled out in front of me and I center punched him at 60 MPH. Put me off work for a year....
