FSSF blouse. First Special Service Force. This is a coming home blouse made by cutting down a foyrvpocket jacket into an Ike style blouse. Original FSSF patch with bold white outline as made in Southern France in late 1944. Ruptured Duck patch on right breast (discharged mark). Really Luca collar badges and red-white-blue shoulder cord. Name not known but it came out of Rome, NY and might belong to a veteran from there. A budget way to get one of these uniforms. I have a senior Canadian officer's FSSF uniform so this is now spare. $250
