    Hi Fellow collectors ,here I have an East German shelter- half in the Strichtarnmuster camouflage pattern, this one was a xmas present to myself and bought from a local surplus store for a very reasonable price , so could not resist buying it.

    Many thanks for looking

    Lovely I've never really properly worked out how these work! Does this one have a date code?

    Hi CBH, many , many thanks for posting these ABL items, I have never seen the shelter half before, so this is great for future reference.

    I really like the Belgium Airforce flecktarn jacket, I really must add one of these to my own collection. I find it fascinating that the Belgium Airforce decide to go with the Bundy inspired flecktarn, and not Jigsaw??

    Thanks again buddy

    "Lovely I've never really properly worked out how these work! Does this one have a date code?"

    Hi René, thankfully this example still has the two draw-cords attached which when pulled create a hood like fixture ( even though it must be noted these draw-cords are made from the cheapest and nastiest nylon material I have ever seen on a military item!)

    The only markings I can make out is the NVA and the 52 as shown in the photo,other than this there are no other markings, I have looked at the dating codes on this forum for NVA gear but I am at a loss dating this one?????

    Any tips you may have would be great

    Hi fellow collectors,I have finally through years of perseverance managed to source a full uniform set of Croatian Woodland pattern.
    First up is the Coat ( very similar to the US M-65 coat in design) secondly the lightweight shirt and finally the Trousers ( again very similar to the US
    M-65 Trousers in design),all in the Croat woodland pattern, the second to last picture hopefully shows the corresponding distinctive pattern ,all be it the colours are different for each garment,also note the labels which generally gives a clue to the origins i.e. the SIFRA manufacturer .

    Whilst this camo is not rare it is however for me a satisfying collection as it took a number of years to source each individual piece to complete the set,thanks for looking

    Hi Fellow collectors, here I have two sets of 90 patterned issue DDPM uniforms, both feature the SASC ( Small Arms School Corps) TRF ( Tactical recognition Flash) ,and all of the garments have the ZAP number penned onto them (ZAP= A personal identification number made from the first 2 letters of your surname and last 4 digits of your army number)
    Unfortunately I can not identify the black shield shaped velcro patch attachment as this stage,so if anyone can add some identification I would be very grateful.

    The second set again belonged to the same SASC soldier,and have the same features as the above set.

    These trousers also belonged to the SASC soldier ,except these are made from a very thin material ( in fact so thin when they are held up to the light I can see right through them!) ,the buttons are bigger, yet not the S95 Canadian type buttons, I could only describe theses as "transitional" meaning they fit between the issue of the 90 Pattern DDPM and the last issue S95 DDPM trousers.

    I've not seen those "transitional" trousers before, the cloth looks to be of a more open weave than the earlier type which is more like the S95 cloth!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks for looking and for your comments Buddy,these trousers got me thinking so I have had a look through my DPM collection this afternoon and found some more of this "transitional" type of DDPM.

    I have two jackets that have all the features of the 90 pattern,zip etc, except these seem to have not been made with the pocket on the upper sleeve, but kept the pen pockets, these have the same very thin material and large buttons too.

    I also found the third jacket, now this one is odd, as it has the shoulder epaulettes from the 90 pattern , with the "new" features of the S95 chest rank tab and the Canadian style buttons, this one has no zip either...even more "transitional" perhaps??
