Abstract:

The Clothing Almanac supplements TA 50-902, mobilization, dated 3 April 1963. Monthly military clothing requirements are given for Southeast Asia, including the countries of Burma, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Viet Nam This region covers portions of Clothing Allowance Zones I and II, which are further divided into mountainous and non-mountainous clothing requirement areas. In general, the environmental conditions of the lowland areas in the southern half of this region require the use of Zone I clothing throughout the year. Zone II clothing is required in lowlands in the northern half of this region. Mountainous areas generally require the use of items listed for the next colder zone, or any additional item required for troop protection. Clothing items are grouped alphabetically in tables for each area. A map is provided at the back of the report to indicate the extent of each area in Southeast Asia. The almanac includes a summary of physical features of the region, high elevations, climate, biotic conditions and the relation of these features to the issue of special clothing items.
