    hi opex ,the pebbled button looks to be west german perhaps from a border guards tunic , i wonder if the hood was removed to make a helmet cover for the m75 ,any ideas where i can pick an example up myself mate


    Thanks James, I think I have id'd the button as being WW2 German ( in fact I looked at one of your post's ), but why on earth it is on this jacket I will never know, I think you are probably onto something with the hood being used as a cover,you know it's ironic I have been after a hood for my M75 and now I have a jacket with no hood!!. Pity it was cut off all the same.




    I picked this one up on ebay, but have searched the web trying to track down more Austrian Pea Pattern but there's not any available in the UK AFAIK. There's a Parka in the same pattern on German ebay but the price is too steep for me!!!!

    Thanks Buddy

    ok thanks opex not to worry ,i was hoping maybe you had one surplus ,as for the button does it have the assmann symbol on the rearside ,the button has an overpaint so i reckon your right on the ww2 period ,i think the bgs buttons are unpainted ,perhaps somebody was trying to make up a waffen ss uniform ,cheers james

    Ha ha I wish I had a surplus I really do, and I would go along with your theory about the previous owner trying to recreate a Waffen look, when the jacket is buttoned up the German button is on display so perhaps would give the impression of it being WW2 German??, I tend to steer away from WW2 German items and as a result am pretty clueless about Nazi items, will continue to search the web for other Austrian items, so If I find a good source I will definitely let you know buddy

    Hi James, very very nice additions buddy I am a great fan of these Belgium uniforms, the trousers I believe are Moon and Balls Pattern and judging by the smock the same.

    I can't tell by the picture but assume the smock has a full length zipper, which from memory makes it the type in use before the Jigsaw patterned version was issued. I can also say that they are both Belgium army issue, as awhile ago I discovered there are Belgium Navy versions of these patterns !!

    Many thanks for showing them James I really like them a lot,bet they look great displayed with your M-71

    The trousers must have been in a warehouse somewhere, there are lots of unissued ones on the surplus market and ebay at the moment!..

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Hi Camo collectors, here's a couple of my British Personal Load Carrying Equipment (PLCE) webbing. The first one has Special Forces type yokes and customised quick release clips on the pouches and was purchased from a Para,the second set has the standard yokes and pouch retaining clips both these webbing sets have been used in conflict. Thanks for looking and feel to comment/query Opex
