    Hi Mate, I had a look at the inside of the trousers this afternoon and the knee is double lined so in the extreme it would be possible to cut out quite a large section of the inner,which would not affect the overall look of the garment, of course original material could be utilised.

    My sewing skills have been honed over the last week, I now feel I should have one of them scout badges for sewing skills,and for doing things on the cheap, and using my initiative, and helping old ladies cross the road..no scrub that I lied I did not have time to assist octogenarian's across my busy road

    I can wait for a hat, I waited 20 years once for the right thing to come along!!

    Perhaps this foum need's a sewing repair section under the restorations hehe

    Hi René, you could try ms.sparrow59 ( sorry not sure about the policies on creating links to ebay) this seller has some sets for $7.00, I am considering buying a set myself, but have some reservations just in case they are not the right sizes etc.

    Great to see your example with the flap attached,and not butchered too mate

    Figured to whack in a shot of me out in the Victorian desert (Big Desert) back in the mid 90's wearing my long 67 BGS jacket, you can just make out my old DOU 42 K98 to the right!

    That camo blends in quite well Rene in the Australian Outback.

    Regards Mark
    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    René fantastic picture, and as Mark already said the camo works very well amongst that foliage. Just goes to show camo can work effectively as well in the outback as well as European forests.

    Hi Guys, many thanks to James for supplying the Pebbled Buttons so I could complete my BGS Jacket, I have guessed where the hood buttons should go as I could see no holes where the original's would have been, the shoulder buttons were easy as there was thread from when the original buttons were removed. I managed to use many spare green plastic buttons from my Bepo trousers and sewed them on to, hopefully this jacket now look's authentic,regards Gary.
