Jungle Green (J.G.) Airtex bush jacket/Shirt

The J.G. Airtex jackets proved very popular with the fighting soldiers unlike the J.G. Battle Dress jacket which was poorly designed as it was to short so constantly rode up. The airtex fabric is breathable enough to survive the harsh conditions of jungle warfare. 

In 1943 the British Army designed and issued a new range of jungle green clothing to replace the vat dyed K.D. uniforms which was previously issued to British and Commonwealth soldiers fighting in the jungles of Burma and SE Asia. The K.D. clothing was replaced as it performed badly in the jungles it was neither durable enough and offered little camouflage.

The airtex jungle jacket could be worn as a bush Jacket with it worn loose outside the trousers or tucked into the waist band as a shirt. 

The J.G. (Jungle Green) bush Jacket/shirt was based on the same design as the Khaki Drill (K.D.) airtex 4 pocket bush jacket/shirt, the difference was that the breathable airtex fabric was pre-dyed green so it would not fade under the hot and humid climate.

  • Breathable airtex fabric

  • Full button front
  • 2 lower pockets 
  • Attached collar
  • twin button cuffs
