    I got this Belgian M90 jigsaw camo recently, very comfortable to wear and my new jacket of choice and the camo pattern goes quite well with the autumn colours. The sellers pic as I have not taken any of it.

    Hi Jerry,fantastic new additions. I have a Belgian M-90 just like yours and they are very practical and hard wearing garments, however I do not have a Canadian Para smock..yet, so I am glad you posted yours up as I would like to add one to my own collection some day.
    These were issued between 1968 to 1995 when they discontinued great example and thanks again for showing it as it has inspired me to source one.

    EDIT; I meant to reply to the number 4 post in this thread but hit the straight reply button when the quote would have made more sense

    An old thread but new to me so I hope some of this is useful;

    Yep, definately a '68 patt and not an airborne item at all. At the time these jackets were in service the 1959 patt "Para smock" or more correctly "Smock camouflage" was in use too and was a real "status symbol".

    The '68 patt continued in use until about 1980 (if memory serves) when some pretty awful kit was issued that soldiers had to modify to make it useable before things returned to sense with CS95 and later patterns.

    The'59 Para smock remained in use until a new DPM type was issued and fully in service by the 1982 Falklands Campaign.

    Note the "jock strap" is inside the DPM jacket and outside on the para smock. Also, despite the intention of the designers the actual use of the "jockstrap" (apart from when enforced during parachuting) of either garment would lead to close questioning of a soldiers "hormone balance"

    I enlisted in 1975 and was issued with and used both the '59 smock and the '68 DPM kit (as well as the later ones) so here are a couple of pics of two of my "keepsakes".

    Also included for interest is a pic of the label on the stuff sack of the thermal jacket shown further up this thread. The jacket itself being reversible has no markings at all and it comes with a stuff sack as do the trousers which is labelled in similar fashion.

    Regards

    Mark
    PS the current para smock retains the elasticated cuffs and press stud fastenings.

    Hi Fellow collectors, some of you will be aware my favourite collecting genre is French Camo, so here is one of my favourite camouflage items, a French TAP 47/56 Jacket with detachable hood. I have yet to find any period pictures of the hood being worn on the jacket, and most commonly they feature being worn on the TAP M-56 Helmet.These Tap jackets were worn by French Foreign Legion paratroopers (1er Régiment étranger de parachutistes and 2ème Régiment Étranger de Parachutistes) in Algeria.
    This jacket has many,many features and to many to list, so I will let the pictures explain them.This particular example was made by Pauwels & Cie Merville and dates from around 1957, if any other collectors have similar examples in their collections I would be very keen to them

    That's a great looking jacket!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Hi Fellow collectors, here I have a San Marco patterned combat jacket. The San Marco ( Italian Marines) developed their own take on the Italian three colour pattern, this example has the common colours featuring on Marine jackets, being a grey/green, mustard and lime-green. The green rubberised plastic star of Savoy on the collar tips is another Marine feature.This jacket has a integrated rubberised liner in the chest and shoulder areas. Most surprisingly this jacket was made in 1996, but appears to be a much older vintage. Incidentally these jackets have buttons to fix a detachable "wooly" liner for extra warmth ( not featured).

    Hi Fellow collectors , here's a jacket I actually wear around at the weekends ( ironically as it is not camo!) and is an old favourite of mine, the OG-107 M-65 of 1967 vintage. I always feel a little "De Niro" when I am wearing it around the supermarket, and in the endless queues it gives me that "edge" ...LOL

    Hi fellow collectors, here I have a reversible Austrian Fleckerlteppich (Pea Pattern) to Steintarnung (Stone Pattern) cover sitting on one of my Austrian Stahlhelm M58 helmets. Another classic use of German WW2 patterns reused post war.

    Interestingly following some research I discovered that in 1995 the Heeresbekleidungsanstalt (HBA) officially released a document with sewing instructions, allowing the use of old surplus tent parts (Zeltbahn) and other discarded camouflage material as material for helmet covers.
    (Reference, Austrian helmet covers)
