The G1 replaced the 1940s M422a in 1947 and has changed little over the 1950s, 60s and 70's. The major differences from its older WW2 brother are the rounding of the pocket flaps and the removal of the USN stamp to the inside 'gasflap' - now not being stenciled but bullet pressed onto jacket. Apart from early 1950s versions this became standard across all jackets.
The G1 is one still aviailable to aviators of the USN & USMC although its fighting days have passed and, today seen more as a badge of the wearers status than a practical bit of war kit.
