    Thanks for the link Rene,good on ya.What I saw was good.
    Have a few Gortex cams as well,Full 2000's British DPM set (use this set),US woodland trousers,US woodland bivi,Had a lined West German Flectern jacket but gave away the shell to a friend in need.
    Mil grade garments are bloody great hay,A1 build and design (in most cases,Euro,USA etc),functional and very hard wearing.It tend to wear my British DMP shirts ( the light temp climate one's) around the yard as they vent nice yet keep the sun off.
    I tend to run with Euro kit as It's designed for a similar clime as Tassie.Lined Euro build jackets are as warm as toast as you know.
    Cheers Rene

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."

    An early British DPM Para smock.
    This garment has had a hard life,it,s been repaired a few times over the years.
    Notice the crutch flap is missing(sent it off for repair 15 odd years back and the seamstress cut the bloody jump flap off and used it as patchs,uuuughhhh.)

    This is a British army 1968 pattern jacket, I have one. Para smocks had full length zipper and no buttons on front, also elasticated cuffs on the sleeves. The flap is designed to stop the jacket riding up when you're crawling on the ground.

    You are quite possibly right Alexander.I was under the impression my garment was Para issue due to the flap,maybe not.I thought the elasistised cuffs were phased out in the late 60's but have found some images that I think prove my concept incorrect.
    Could you post yours as I would love to have a look mate and compare to my old smock.
    Have a good one cobber.

    Love mine and wear them all the time also,
    Mate just got lucky ,Was surfing UK disposal stores and bingo there they were,Grabbed my set straight away,then ordered another set of trousers when I saw the build quality of these garments.(would have grabbed another smock but they had run out,this blokes M-84 stock sold fast.)
    I quess I could ask a similar question,
    How did a pair of M84 desert cam trousers end up in frozen Russia
    Have a good one mate

    A very versatile bit of kit this one,It used to live in the bottom of my pack as a emergency shelther.It's long enough to curl up inside of, and with a backstop it can be jury rigged a bit like a hootchi shelter.
    I really like this old girl,she'e a ripper.



    Have a good one
    Sorry I can't get rid of the old image.

    This is a cool one,Rene you may like this jacket mate.
    RAAF Immersion jacket.(not a cam pattern but some would say OD is a form of cam)
    Worn by flight crew's when operating over cold water.
    It's a Canadian design and works by stopping cold water from reaching the torso from the bottom of the jacket (flushing).Cold water will quickly drop body core temp. and will bring on Hypothermia fast.
    The flap fits between the legs and is attached to clips on the front.When on the flap looks like a pair if wet suit shorts attached to the jacket.This creates the seal.
    The body of the jacket has a neoprene liner(2mm or so) and the sleeves have neo seals.There is also a fluro orange hood inside the jacket's collar.

    Still I would'nt like to be in the position where I would have to deploy the flap as a bit of cold water swimming is highly likely.
