    A very desirable and hard to come by set Ralph as you well know the goverment is destroying almost all of the tempered as it is /was being used in the theater of operation in Afghanistan and there were some very real concerns it would fall into the hands of the insurgents and or the Taliban .

    This is also apparent with Aussie kit and fair enough

    I recently purchased this Eichenlaubmuster (Oak Leaf Pattern )field tunic which has been constructed in the style of a Gebirgsjager Windjacket at auction for a decent price.
    I had posted it in a different thread for authentication and Lars and his wife Anna had commented on the interior stitching Anna believed the sewing had been done with a modern machine. The tunic arrived in the mail a couple of days ago and there can now be no doubt that it is a post war manufactured item as the coverlock stitching is clearly evident and it would appear to have been applied with a surger type of sewing machine.
    The thread that was used in the construction does not pass the burn test either I do find it an interesting garment though and still have a few unanswered questions regarding this textile.
    Now that I have it in hand there is some definate age and patina to the cloth and it smells of old canvas I dumped a cap of water on the cloth and it beads up and or roles away and does not soak in to the cloth so it has the same waterproof/resistant qualities as a Zeltbahn.
    I am still interested in opinions on the materials used in the construction ie.. was an original swath of war time cloth or a zeltbahn used in the constuction of this piece .A good friend of mine brought this fact to my attention that it was not so many years ago that large swaths of WSS fabric were found in Germany and other Europeen countries that were occupied by the Germans during WW2 a little food for thought
    Regardless of weather or not the fabric is original period WSS cloth I find it an interesting Item and IMO it is a one of a kind custom manufactured piece and I gladly welcome it in my collection

    I came upon this nice ERDL poplin class 2 slant pocket shirt a few weeks ago it is constructed in the low land (dominant browns ) camouflauge pattern and is in very nice condition and still quite vibrant .
    Something interesting I noticed about this particular camouflage pattern is there would appear to have been two types of dyes used in the black swirls as some of them are outlined in dark black fading into an almost dark blue in color .

    I came upon this little gem a few weeks ago and it is a must for Canadian Camouflage collectors (Garrison Dress ) this order of dress was very short lived and very unpopular with the troops do to the fact they were constructed from an unbreathable polyester material.
    They did spawn a new era of GD insignia and badges though some of which are very hard to come by from a collectors point of view.
    This particular Garrison Jacket has been striped of it's insignia but the tell tale signs of some of the badges are still there such as Airborne Qualification wings over the breast pocket.

    This thread has been quiet for a while, so a bump...Australian Desert Auscam holsters left and right hand examples-for the Browning HP35 or Beretta M92M 9mm pistols. Auscam is now being replaced by a pattern similar to the current US pattern so the gear is showing up brand new for sale.
