Vintage Auction File 3: Embroidered Japan-Tour Jacket “Iwojima”
Embroidered Japan-Tour Reversible Jacket “Iwojima,”
with “Tokyo Speed” zipper,
manufactured in Japan in ca. 1957.
*This Japan-Tour jacket, ordered by Art Donnie who served for U.S. M.C. from 1954 to 1957,
has extremely rare embroidery on the back: “Iojima.” Wow….!!
Probably, his “3rd Service Engineering” team visited Iwojima in the mid 1950s
to research: what was happening at their “worst” battle fields between soldiers of USA and Japan during WWII.
