The raincoat, officially known as the M1938 Raincoat (Synthetic Resin Coated, Olive Drab, Dismounted), was a prized possession for any soldier during the wet and dreary conditions of the European Theater of Operations in the winters and springs of 1943-45. Earlier models made of heavy-duty rubberized canvas were effective but burdensome. In 1942, the Quartermaster Corps experimented with various substitute materials due to the rubber shortage, but none were fully satisfactory. The M1941 and M1943 field jackets worn by most troops were shorter and more practical, allowing greater mobility, but they did not keep soldiers as dry and did not cover the user’s bottom as well when seated on the muddy ground or in a foxhole.

Additional Information:

  • Historical Context: This figurine represents the adaptability and resourcefulness of U.S. infantrymen during World War II, highlighting their efforts to stay dry and effective in challenging weather conditions.
  • Collector's Appeal: Ideal for military history enthusiasts and collectors of WWII memorabilia, this piece offers a realistic portrayal of the challenges faced by soldiers in the field.

Add this meticulously crafted U.S. Infantryman in Raincoat Pointing figurine to your collection to honor the resilience and determination of the soldiers who endured the harsh conditions of World War II.
