    Hi All

    Reverting to Brit cams for a moment, here's my SAS smock and belt order. The smock dates from about 1980, the webbing is all dateable to 1979 or earlier. The drop ammo pouches are the SLR version. You can just see the altimeter pouch behind the 9mm Browning holster. I'm still short of an early escape pouch, hence the gap at the back. To finish off this set-up I have windproof trousers of about the same date, an undateable woolly hat of the right type, a 1979 dated para bergen, and some 70s German para boots, favoured by many of our troops in the Falklands campaign.

    Very nice SAS display Ted, the smock is in tremendous condition, and interesting belt order, very informative my friend.

    I sold most of my camo collection a few years ago, but i found a couple of items lurking in the cupboard!....
    Italian "Somalia" pattern!....
    Very nice Paul, I have yet to add any pre-2004 Italian Desert camo to my collection, I look forward to seeing more of your camo as and when you get the time to post it here

    After studying many tigerstripe variations i think these are South Vietnamese marines pattern, no labels of any kind in them!....
    Beautiful example of the Tiger stripe pattern Paul, rip-stop material that's quite unusual for Vietnam issue, pity there's no label to identify them,thanks for sharing buddy

    I think they are quite early by the look of the high HBT type pockets!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.



    I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...

    Very nice Kradman, they look like Oman, great to see the set with hand - written labels like that, are there any manufacturers labels in the garments to positively ID them

    Agreed, the high pockets is a feature of the early versions

    Here we are guys, another Falklands period smock. This is the arctic smock worn by the Royal Marines, the Paras, and anyone else who could get hold of one. This differs from the SAS smock in having rank tabs chest and back, and a larger, wired hood. Any windproofs in the old Imperial sizing have become very difficult to find. Windproofs went over to metric sizing about 1980-81.

    Very nice Ted, I have a mid 80's version of this fantastic garment used by a RMC and completely agree the pre-metric versions are indeed scarce, many thanks for showing yours, which is superb condition and looks to be NOS.
