          Yes, that is the blurred edge. Below is the plain tree.

          Cheers!

              American cammo was state of the art for the time as well

                Except it wasn't worn much in the ETO for fear of being mistaken for SS.

                    Correct. After a couple of soldiers where accidently shot (mistaken for SS); the camouflage suits were withdrawn.

                    Cheers!

                            If I recall correctly; it was a one piece uniform. I'd not bet the farm on it though,
