Abstract:

The prototype Reconnaissance Jackets M-2, were tested by the 2d Force Reconnaissance Company during extensive amphibious operations at St. Thomas, Virgin Islands during the period 6 October - 10 November 1961. Results indicate that the modifications incorporated into the M-2 jacket as a result of the initial tests have now rendered the jacket a useful item that is a substantial improvement over the camouflage utilities now in use.
