    Here's a South african type (in use at the Castle Of Good Hope, Cape Town) and me wearing my Sea Bees 3 colour (very early 92 dated an one I always use when traveling OS) on top of Table mountain and a BDU - I have a pile of these!

    Gday Rene,
    I always wondered why the USMC accepted such a poor embroided eagle,They could have done better hay.
    Love the AUSCAMS,cool banana's.
    I've only got some older standard pattern shirts and trousers(couple of each I think).

    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.
    Dave, Now that's a beauty!!!

    A pair of Swiss Apenflec wool trousers.
    This smart citizen soldier has sewn water proof panels onto the legs and crutch.
    No wet legs when prone or kneeling.
    A very nice spring mountain pattern I think.We get a bit of red in our mountain flora down here in spring,very pleasing to the eye.

    Borrowed these images from another site.1980's Iraqi maybe (the pattern style that is),I believe it was a British designed pattern and a predesesor to the British two color pattern.
    It's similar,but as you say it also has a Dutch look (the swirly look).Temperate New Zealand DPM is similar to the standard Dutch pattern but I am pretty sure they do not make a Desert Pattern.They use British Desert DPM.
    May be a late RAF/Dutch airforce for it is a gortex.?
    Have a good one
