The story of the Anzio blanket (my new blankie)
#21

This is NOT a special blanket!

 

Blankets varied in color and could be anything from olive drab (green) to khaki (tan), etc.

 

Size: 62" X 67"

 

Color: Khaki Green

 

Material: Wool

 

 

Sometimes the color was even referred to as khaki green, as seen above.

 

Here's a good link which shows all the varying colors, including blankets stitched with the US emblem. All standard.

Here's another photo of my blanket.

Neat, Marion. Things always have a special meaning when they're given to you from the heart.

I may find myself snuggled in my blanket one night. It's almost spooky knowing where it's been!
